The Answer To The Eternal Question
I have found the answer to the eternal question.
It was radiant in a sunset;
Shining in a rainbow;
Living in the rocks and trees;
Alive in rivers, seas and cliffs.
It reflected back at me
From mountains, hills and valleys.
It spoke to me as I lay
In flower-strewn meadows.
It hummed to me with every
Magnificent winged or crawling creature.
It filled me with delight
With every sight of fur and claw.
It sang to me
With coloured plumage.
It filled me with wonder and elation.
And the answer dwelt
Beyond words, beyond teachings
And was manifest
For it was enough
To be part
Of such an exquisite flow.
When one is immersed in the glory of nature there is no need to ask for any more.
There are no further questions and no more answers.
From the heavens above to the rocks below, in the midst of the wealth of life, the answer is all around us.
We are part of a wondrous flow. That is enough.
