Why Not


All of us are searching
For the same completion.

But What is found in the stars
Is just sifted through a funnel
Folded of  colorful paper,

scattered across a world
We are all Searching, seeking;
Becoming this and that.

I hear natural’s voice
Sings all the same, whether
Rooted and mature or
A Sapling in spring dew.

Each woodland creation
Lifts up to the sun
And bows down as shade
To all underneath them.

I have never seen a butterfly
Beg or flaunt its life away.
Want and need, are weeds
In the wild garden they fly in.

Harmony, a state of being
That thrives without doing.
Nature is nature without trying.
The butterfly never questions
Its purpose of being.

We all search and seek
Our lives away in a dream,

Trying to become someone.
losing touch with the one.
