You might ask why? Why all this searching, and seeking?
What is it we are looking to find as we travel this
endless climb into an unknown future?
And why would we, should we, nurture such a quest?
If it’s all just a test that might never find a conclusion?
Can’t you at least promise a pot of gold, when it’s finally over?
And no, I can’t make such a promise, may only repeat
what I was told so long ago, back there at the beginning.
“This seeking and searching may never end.
For it is a life long lesson that continues to wend
it’s way until the day your soul steps forward
to quietly but clearly say, “The search is over.” “

Notes: Image is a digital painting I did years ago, then put through the kaleidoscope app. I like it because it makes me think of a pot of gold with that blue center. Blue is the color of knowledge and wisdom.
