Questions

For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point… mtg

Life is full of questions
Such as, why the ocean
neither overwhelms
the valleys and the plains on earth
nor pours out its fill
from its basin?
Gravity might be or not
be the answer.

Is this the same gravity that holds
men and women who commit themselves to Love?
If it is, why have they drifted apart ?
why they are soon overcome by differences?
Unlike the ocean, come storms at night,
its tide empties and swells its bosom
but not an ounce is drained from its whole.

Do we always put a period to all answered questions?
Or if everything is answered, does one find
the answer meaningful to his existence?

For life is not life if quest to ask ends
As round as the earth, it is how all the answers
circle our life in question.
