We Search

A different Life, a better Life
Missing what stares us in the face
Every sight, sound and smell

In the trees and flowers, a sunset
The roar of traffic, the beating of a heart
Within these words and outside of them

In the white of the paper and the black of the ink
In the space and in the silence
The in-between and the unseen, in the visible

In the throb of life and the peace of death
The cry of a baby, and the death rattle of the old man
In everything, as everything, life sings

Note:
The word ‘universe’ literally means ‘one song’.
