Exquisite is a word I often use
To express beauty so profuse
Odes composed delightfully bespeak
The elegant curve of a baby’s cheek
Or architecture so well crafted
Superb, excellent, well fashioned
What of the first snowfall of the year
Fragile, delicate yet fills us with cheer
The beauty found in friendships dear
Overflowing with joy and great cheer
A piece of poetry or a great read
Touching our heart filling a need
Much in our world can be found
So exquisite and yet so profound
Unfinished business, that’s what I am?
I lean forward his eyes I quickly scan
You left without a single word
I thought someone else you preferred
I tossed and turned and slept so little
Nothing was said, you were noncommittal
A year has passed in which to heal
Even as my eyes in sleep did seal
I’ve pictured your beautiful face
Full of strength and equal grace
I loved you with depth profound
Memories full and clear abound
Of everything we shared together
Days and nights of heady pleasure
Now a conundrum before me lays
My mind enveloped in a haze
Or did we leave our business unfinished?
From the ridiculous to the sublime, we can be moved on profound levels. Has that ever happened to you? I have to admit that occasionally it has happened to me.
On one flip of the coin I read a piece of prose so profound and insightful I was momentarily dumbfounded as I grasped it’s implications. It was a thought so completely implausible yet possible, it stopped me in my tracks.
Conversely I read an article by a writer that was although earnest, clearly the scariest notion I’d ever read. It too was completely stunningly profound in it’s ignorance and in my opinion shortsightedness, but still it effected me the same way.
From the ridiculous to the sublime
To new heights i have climbed
By ignorance personified
A notion so radical
It seemed laughable
Nothing superficial mild or slight
That which fills us with deeper insight.
