Ions come in both polarities
Positive and negative varieties.
Your Quest in this discernment age
To sort plus from minus on the page.

You are not exactly adding
Neither are you subtracting
No mathematics needed here
Just opposites of love and fear.

Judgement comes in the same set
Especially for those we’ve met.
Are they true to their word
Or are they as flighty as a bird?

When answers you are seeking
Often it’s the questions lacking
When missing some vital words
By mistake or deliberate it occurs.

Question, often its answer holds
When written in the paper folds
Question has your task within
For its Quest that’s inner working.

Adding ions to your Quest brings
Polarity of plus or minus strings
Quest-ions show our brilliance
Or oppositely our ignorance.

Take care you ask what’s relevant
Or you may appear a little ignorant
Who are you trying to impress?
Whoever, there should be no stress.

Out of this field of judging
There should be no fudging
Your Quest is happiness and joy
No matter which ion you employ.

    Well, well, well.
    Reading your verses made me remember Aesops’Fables or even Nostradamus warnings. You are the modern vers-ion of these great Story Tellers.
    It’s always a pleasure to read your enlightened commentaries, never a dull phrase in your passionate sharings.
    We can only wish, very selfishly, that you may have a very long life and many more quest-ions and answers for our own edification.

    Thank you so very much.
    Much love and light I send thee and to all those who will read your blog.
