Understanding

 

 

 

 

E. Morin
The poetry of life, with the love it contains and that contains it, is the only response to death.

I understand I don’t understand

It is clear
that it is dark,
I can see
that I cannot see
everything there is.
I think
I can think
about everything there is,
but I know
I do not know
what there really is,
what really is.
I reach out
to find myself,
but I am not there.
