Elusive inner presence, other me 2

Elusive inner presence, other me,
Those bubbles on the water surface tell
Of life we cannot  speak about  nor see

We have many layers, currents pulled
Dynamic, swaying, living, dark unquelled.
Elusive inner presence, other me.

The philosophers like Langer will agree
A symbol is as deep as any well.
With life we barely  speak about  or see

A mermaid’s tail may flicker from the sea
The  rhythm of waves our senses well compelled
Elusive inner presence, other me.

 

Humanity is like  a living tree
If one leaf falls there is no plangent bell
For what  we cannot  speak about  nor see

A coat embroidered three dimensionally
Will seize our eye and heart and soul as well
Elusive inner presence, other me.

The inner one  must live in privacy,
Betrayed by none in marvelled secrecy.
Elusive inner presence, other me,
A life we  barely speak about  or see
