THE RIDDLE


 


Somewhere in the recesses of thought and feeling abides an emotion rare


One so distant as to be almost unnoticed except in that fleeting moment


When time and circumstance allow the soul to traverse beyond normal realms


 


In that time most unexpected it peers above the horizon of cognitive reason


To pummel conventional thought and make waste of preconceived notions


Leaving the soul bare and unprotected


 


How frightening this anomaly…this inexplicable wrinkle in the fabric of sanity


From where does it come?  Why does it exist?


How do we categorize it into something comprehensible?


 


We do not.  It is a part of us for which we have no understanding


Not even the dexterity of wisdom and knowledge working in rare harmony


Can begin to permeate the hidden meaning of this thing over which we have no control


 


An emotion.  Indescribable.  Uncontrollable.  Incomprehensible.


If but for a moment we could understand it perhaps life would finally have meaning


And the great questions would find answers.


 


Until then we are but seekers, in constant enmity with the universe


Searching for that which we may never find


But for which we will never cease to search.
