Poetry: The Unanswered Question

Stop looking for answers

hold instead to the question

in your heart.

The question taken inwards

unfolds into a stairway

that guides you down

into the centre of your soul

where the wonder,


and grace of the unknowing

light a candle

in the darkness.

Where majesty and mundane

can exchange notes

that only a silent listener

can hear

And love plays the flute

That sends sweet melodies

To sooth your suffering

And set your spirit free
