“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.” ― Albert Einstein
DROPLET OF MYSTERY
I was only taking a peek
into the river’s symmetry
as it unfolded beneath my feet
like a giant black hole in a magnetic field.
My body drifted into the ocean’s mouth,
swallowed whole I danced in the melody of waves
into the caves of the deepest blue,
bathed in the fragrance of discovery.
The fragrance of rain and tender moon
entwined with sunrays, love and falling stars,
the transcending journey through the shimmering sands
not knowing where my soul begins and where it ends.
But I didn’t worry for I lived a dream
like a droplet of mystery rolling in the wind.
