Pondering Existence, A Poem


Am I the fruit?

Am I the seed?

Am I the gentle petal

Lifted from its shroud

Hung in the wind

In a delicate dance

Till the very end

Where only my fragrance lingers.

Do I breathe deep

The fresh morning air?

Does it fill my soul

With solace?

Do I reach for the sun


And lingering

In its brightness?

There is hope here

In the stillness

There is unique beauty

In the passionate crawl

Toward deep meaningful breath

And I linger here, in the shadows

Of yesterday, today and tomorrow

And wonder my significance

And have I lived it well?
