QUEST of MAN

There is a longing left
within the wondering mind of man
that searches ever in the glades
of stony paths and silver shades.
Searching back through space and time
for temples lost to earth and sea
to find our purpose, you and me.
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
We wonder of the God unseen
and worshipped there within
those monoliths and circles clean.
Like those lost in limbo
fixed upon one thought alone.
Stones and circles only show
what you are now, not once you were.
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
You will not find yourself elsewhere
only here, though dark or fair
it’s only in the moment you can compare
with the moment that’s just gone
not the one in days or years bygone.
You won’t find yourself below the earth
or underneath the roaring surf,
only in this moment
when you live and love and laugh.
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
The ones who visit us to learn and play.
Would you know them day by day?
As you are here to live and learn
they too wish briefly to share and yearn
to be part of your daily class
they share in love then pass.
You’ve seen them face to face
but you don’t know, you don’t know.
You live in fear they might appear
but they’ve already been that’s clear
they’re who you are right now, today,
without their gift you’d not see the ray
that draws you to the stars each day.
Though you search in sea or heaven
your quest is here in earth that’s riven,
a planet rent and torn, depleted too.
By who? By you !
You must know, you must know!
Your quest is to repair, restore, to know
with every breath and every step to go
with love and joy together in the know!
Hanukah.
