Poem Commentary

One can't help but wonder . . .


One can't help but wonder ...

What if -- I were to tell you
That I've seen horses fly,
Upon the wings of Pegasus
Across the star-filled sky?
Would you look at me and ponder --
Or accuse me of a lie?

What if -- I were to tell you
That I've seen what the future holds,
And sometimes it can be scary
As many prophets have foretold?
Would you look at me and ponder --
Or would you really want to know?

What if -- I were to tell you
That I've lived many lives,
And that life's a menagerie of dreams
A collage of borrowed time?
Would you look at me and ponder --
Or would you just wonder why?

One can't help but wonder ...

What if -- I were to tell you
That the cow jumped over the moon,
And that I was there and that I saw
the dish run away with the spoon?
Would you look at me and ponder --
Or would you think I was a loon?

What if -- I were to tell you
That I've been inside your dreams,
And I know what you've been thinking
About all those secret things?
Would you look at me and ponder --
or would you just simply Scream!?

What if -- I were to tell you
Would you listen and wonder why,
Would you want me to tell the truth
Or would you rather hear a lie?
Would you look at me and ponder --
Or try to read between the lines?

One can't help but wonder ...

I see you have been where I am; you see what I know and the reverse I am sure is absolute. You read my "mind" and I yours for I lived many lives and entered many dreams and touch innumberable souls. I do like that you elucidate these thoughts and I have become a fan and a sibling in energy.



Thank you Olan! :) I appreciate your read and comments. You humble me so. Thanks again! :) Ken



We are all mere vibrations of the Universe or the One. We know each other in spirit and I stand humbled in your harmony. Love, peace and freedom, Olan

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
