I’ve read the words of men who walk where understanding grows: who’ve passed beneath the tree of wisdom and had its shadow grant them peace, briefly though it be.
Look in their eyes and you will discover glimpses of eternity.  With them you sense the present is infinite, and events the actors which provide a change of scenery.  In life there are many theories but few explanations.  With time I discovered that we will know more than we can say, and understand beyond our powers of expression.

Some come by to read a line or two, see nothing here and soon move on their way.  That I understand.  Life is full of glances.  But to you, who read beyond an opening phrase I say this:
Online we meet.. inside.. out:  emotions first, and dreams of course.  Some anecdotes: piecemeal at best.  Brief glimpses of a passing life, written in faltering intimacy.
Reader meet the writer of these words.
… Let me hope that you who caught my words, and held them briefly in your thoughts, find the peace to quench your doubts and walk with me towards your chosen path.

(Peter, I hope you will forgive my correcting some “typing errors” in the original.  I realize they may not have been actual errors as this is meant to be a poem in its original state, but as I was excerpting it, I hope you won’t mind my changes.)   —  KMAB]

I want to know what everything is, and what nothing is; the beauty of a note and the silence which surrounds it.  I like to know and understand myself, and those whom I meet, or nearly meet.  I am conscious that I will not always be conscious.  That my curiosity is unlimited but my time is finite, and I cannot waste a moment of it in acquiring things which will not make me richer in a way I understand.
The amusing thing is many would consider me as living in la la land, where poetry is a secret form of currency, and music a mode of transport which might carry me to lands and vistas invisible to the naked eye.  To where angels might dwell and we might begin to forgive and truly understand the love which passes all understanding.  I can live with their opinion, but I cannot live without my imagination.
