Bottomless Questions - Nov. 17, 2021

the gods never answer


they’re not interested

in any of your concerns

which are neither owned

nor for sale


not the peace

or stillness you seek

nor a fragment of happiness

certainly not ways to get there


their focus is power

possession control fame

always wanting to grasp

hold on keep never let go


how lucky you are to realize

the path must be surrendered

perhaps gently rowing

on a tree-shaded creek

to stop paddling

close the eyes

and listen to the current

the clue on its way downstream
