    A mountain goat will stand still for hours,
    upon some precarious ledge,
    waiting, observing, thinking
    while its world lies at its feet;
    of canyons and crags and pathless ways.

    We search for deeper experiences,
    no longer satisfied to just be;
    transcending our own animal acceptance,
    we splinter reality: what do we create?
    We set “The Question” in motion.

    From our fevered quest,
    an overflow of new thoughts emerges
    on perfections and imperfections we dwell
    balanced precariously as on a pinnacle of rock
    centered within a shoreless stormy sea.

    Assailed by a mind unbound
    as wild gods we search the unmanifest
    drawing meaning from holographic images

    So much confusion, pain, sorrow,
    The Question has unleashed within –
    but why should that be so?

    That question is easily answered:
    our primary search pattern or quest
    is bound up in intangibles of faith and hope and love
    and to understand this we must know
    the taste of our own bread of experience
    stored within a treasure trove of feelings.
