How Much of Life/Meta- (Beyond)The Natural Sharer

They were done last night. Finished today, of course. Revised three years later.

All In A Night

 

              How Much of Life…?

 

How much of life is fear determined?

Wakeful days, the sleeping nights

We know so little of,

Fear when even friends are near,

Invaded, oft pervaded by its ambience,

Its atmosphere –

How to transcend it?

 

               Meta- (Beyond)

 

Something’s joining us to everything.

You’re breathing in, you’re breathing out –

How does what comes in come about?

‘Tween seen and known, the provable and shown

Is something even genius can’t do more than hint at:

Something meta-.

Breath as tools, breath-excused

Designed to live here in this atmosphere

Extracting, giving, taking,

Driven to survive: a generational archive.

Where, from, and why?

A gift so other souls thrive further.

 

                The Natural Sharer

The natural sharer, makes his information clearer;

Any phrase that he’s afraid may cloud.

He’ll write, correct and trace the awkward

Served upon a silver platter,

He’ll waive the chatter for a word,

Hunt down its root, though

Not giving a hoot for you,

And yet, the sharer must beware,

For he can tire,

Make subject dreary, listener weary,

Sound pedantic, lack in logic.

Bless the poet conjurer

Who’d take you to the strangest lands;

Bless the harbinger, the hands that share

Because the thought is there –

And nothing other.
