Curiouser & Curiouser

    Curiouser & Curiouser

I want to know just what You are;

It isn’t fair.

I know You’re there because I see effects most every day,

Trying with techniques to portray tiny marvels I survey; 

Often evidence where all my senses sense it,

It phenomenal

Demanding observational

Acuity deepened, sharpened all the time

To make more room

In this small brain mine.

So HARD to explain!

I maintain, it isn’t fair

To sense, intuit a You there

And not go further.

Perceived or grasped:

Faster, richer processes:

Reflex gestures quicker, slicker

Bod/mind far less inclined to tire, slacker,

Ageing voice extant but thicker 

Yes, this Godly thing,

While not for hire requiring attention,

Feels plainly like ascension.

Yet there’s more I do not know than know.

Not overcome than triumph over.

It may always be so until all my ten toes stiffen.

While this vital life’s still lifting

I am curiouser, curiouser,

Cursor always subtly there

And light as air.

This condition being human,

Never to be constant zooming upward,

High grounds of this sort, though not a very steep escarpment 

Nonetheless, are always sharp when meant to climb

In actions, thoughts, aims, ends and rhyme.
