How certain we are in our arrogant stances, thinking we know so much, searching for those elusive answers to the questions that plague our dreams. Yet in nature’s eyes, we are a joke, so uniquely misconstrued our view, we chase our tails like a bewildered dog. Perhaps we should just listen and observe a little more, see what nature in its perfection knows already…
Disparity laps upon the shore,
while hilarity stands covertly behind swaying palms,
seeing the blind confusion in the room,
as inequality the sum of all the extremes we consume,
and then judge to be wrong.
Nature’s honed eyes see much more,
and with a wry grin, cannot help but
find amusement in human bemusement,
living between truth and lie,
constructing spires into the sky, for heaven’s connection.
The sands upon the beach of life are all the souls
lost to themselves in the quest of searching,
yet they search for who they are,
not some reflection of hallowed stars,
voicing approval for their human upheaval.
As the sun plays shadow games
and shells with life within, sit motionlessly
awaiting the tides to swallow them,
driftwood honed from storms and artistic ploys
lie in elegant stances, poised to be.
And gulls squawk in a symphony,
watching the flighted thoughts of human plight,
bantering with joy and strife
to be left wanting in a parade of beauty,
seeking absolution for their folly.
And as tides rise and revoke their yield,
thoughts no grander than before
flail in nature’s certainty,
and human eyes squandered in the coping,
peer aimlessly into eternity’s breach.
