In Search of Reason

Too naive to understand … constant run
we watched the grains of sand dwindle
lost in vast dimensions
learn…leap
to purpose reason
a simple understanding
transition…imminent
…the path is not
conquered by having a why

(Once again I have borrowed from the brilliant minds of this week’s contributors to create a found poem. The author of each line is listed in the order they appear. Our challenge for the week was to consider the meaning of reason. Image my own.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. VJ, I like the line “a simple understanding.” Sometimes we look for unknowable larger truths. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. That simple knowledge helps planners without knowing about a planet’s rotation. Keith
