That Great Unknown

defines my spirit
as I walk That Great Unknown
wondering where I am to go now,
to settle on life's purpose.
Is this all there is
or will be?

In these times
I sense your shadow
but know I'll never see you.
On sunny days I foolishly think
you're walking with me, smiling.
I should know better.
You are blind.

Why should I
not have your secrets
to explain uncertainty?
I want to know all explanations,
and ascertain all reasons,
life with no riddles.
To see all.

Will you walk
with me and whisper
secrets of That Great Unknown,
fill my mind with knowledge eternal?
Alas, I knew you would not.
My only chance is
to have faith.

Meeting by Chance

like a full moon glares
steady and implacable
your eyes, fireworks, hang in mid air
portent, heavy, dripping stars
to meet my glimmer
in return.
