finding forever

just because you couldn’t hear me
didn’t mean I was silent

hear my silence

(if I searched forever,
I couldn’t have found a better image)

***

and that would have been it until @coldtusker (CT) asked me
“Did you search?”
instantaneously the answer came to me
“I found my forever”

Which got me thinking that forever is not of time nor of a place, it is more like something we become. The more subtle we are, the closer to becoming forever.

I believe that double the respect should go to the questioner than to the one who provides the answers.

May we all find our forevers in the coming year!

  1. Your words resonate deeply for me and remind me of a quote from Rainer Maria Relke in Letters to a Young Poet:
    “…At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day…”
    The sense that in being with the question, allowing it to exist unanswered, there comes the possibility of peace and the spaciousness for unknown possibilities to flourish.

  2. Dear Sonya,

    It is always when, instead of getting our questions answered, we get our answers questioned. This very nice poem serves in the way.

    Thank you!

    All good wishes,

    robert
