EXISTENCE IS MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

For in this life
we sing not long
and when we rest
remains our song…

What purpose does this existence hold?
It seems that everything
is simply bought and sold.
Are we here to fight?
To be bankers?
postmen?
plumbers?
priests?
poets?
The mountain understands
that it is here simply TO BE.
We are not that lucky.
Does the moon rise for any purpose
but to make us wonder?
It spills rainbows
out of eyes.
It gives dreams to the lonely.
It gives outsiders
a light in the darkness.
There simply must be a reason for this madness.
You’d think.
But who has the answers?
Who will ever really KNOW anything?

The appropriate way to end this
would be a gentle sigh of quiet discontent…

    • Thank you very much. If you`re wondering, it`s a huge peninsula called Shizuoka, about 100 kilometers south of Tokyo, Japan near a town called Awashima, next to Numazu City. Truly a beautiful place…

      • Yes, I do. I have thousands of photos on Flickr, but for the purpose of this website, I`ve just been using ones that are either relevant to the writing or just nice eye-catchers. There`s actually a link on my homepage at the lower left in the red. Thanks again for your nice words and I`ll talk to you soon…
