with knowing smiles

with knowing smiles

let us sit by the poolside
and peer with circumspection
at the enigmatic reflections
of self

the many forces that define us
are ever at play

can you see the miniscule microbes
those of the small thoughts
whose potential
can make mountains move
or disintegrate
leaving a telling beach of sand
which we draw lines in

can you feel the winds of change
sometimes briskly
sometimes softly
across our surface
leaving traceable evidence
creating co-centric circles
of connection
creating rivulets
and tides
moving our peace
into other dimensions
that we may discover
a new plateau of existence

my thinking takes hold of
my emotion
with a motion at times
i do not control

who revoked my license
to drive my own wanting
and desires
through this terrain

did i violate a speeding law
any law
or was i just plain reckless

heck this is
something to ponder
have you ever wondered
about that
in your meandering
and wandering
though the years
the tears
the fears
only to have to do this

sit and examine
the whys
the absence of bliss
not spoken from her lips . . . life

these cerebral poolsides
do have some purpose
i think
and i watch
as life winks back at me
with knowing smiles
