Heart, Soul, and Rough Edges — A Gypsy Journey of Words and Wonder

Make Visible: The Big Questions

I’m a poet with a particular point of view. In these next blog posts I’ll post poems on different subjects from my point of view. Each poem is an expression, through me, of inspiration or Spirit or emotion. What you see in this light is what you bring to the poem.

We all ask ourselves the big questions from time to time. Here’s a poem that both asks and answers the big questions, in a way.


So existential
So philosophical
almost Zen Buddhist.

You’d never know it,
from my letters, emails
chatty with activity
detailing my relationships
the things I wonder about…

Life, death, the afterlife
mushrooms sprouting in my head,
the fungus of eternal questions.

This I don’t share.
This I keep to myself.
In the shade of this great tree.
