The Question

See me walk to the moon…

I’ll walk to the moon
and then to the stars near by
then to the lake holding the reflection
of both, to ask…
did you find me important?

I will run down with the river
and then evaporate in the sky
to be sheltered in embrace of rocks
again, to solicit…
did you find me kind?

I will dissipate in thin air
and then become the mist of highs
to be retained on the surface just for a night
to inquire,
did you find me alight?

I’ll dance in the ocean
and then crusade with the tides,
then fall like a color of her
unfathomable eyes, to probe,
did you find me potent?

I will fall like a dry leaf
and then decorate the pass by
to be known as a reminder for days
too nigh, asking
did you find me bright?

I will mix with the dust
and then sparkle as a war cry
to be echoed forever among the dead and
alive, to examine,
did you find me polite?

I will burn with a cold fire
and then settle as a crimson dye
then rise as a phoenix again in heart and
mind, to pose,
did you find me latent?

What would I not do, to be with you,
to constantly remain in your sight…

Yet from the peaks of the mountains
to the lakes beside the valleys,
from deepest troughs in existence,
to highest man-made baileys…

I remain invisible to you…
I remain unnoticed – unfelt.

I still linger around waiting,
like future sure happening,
for the moment when you’d come
and respond…

“I’m too yours, like your’re mine.
The answer was all in front… all this time.”

Set on a path... Lover would do anything to earn the love.

Set on a path… Lover strives to do what it takes to earn the love.

– Dedicated to love and truth that exists but yet remains invisible…

  3. Speak not, lie hidden, and conceal
    the way you dream, the things you feel.
    Deep in your spirit let them rise
    akin to stars in crystal skies
    that set before the night is blurred:
    delight in them and speak no word.

    How can a heart expression find?
    How should another know your mind?
    Will he discern what quickens you?
    A thought, once uttered, is untrue.
    Dimmed is the fountainhead when stirred:
    drink at the source and speak no word.

    Live in your inner self alone
    within your soul a world has grown,
    the magic of veiled thoughts that might
    be blinded by the outer light,
    drowned in the noise of day, unheard…
    take in their song and speak no word.

    — Fyodor Tyutchev, Silentium

  4. Once again you have written a masterpiece and once again words have failed me.
    “I’ll dance in the ocean
    and then crusade with the tides, ..”
    For some insane reason, I loved these lines the most ~
