Question We Must Ask

Poem By Lee Fones

where does time really go
like a river water flow
where or whence it came
like a single burning flame

so a question must arise
just like those high tides
what lights up the moonlit sky
plus what happens when we die

all these questions we must ask
as we sit with our flask
what's the point of spaceship craft
brr I'm cold on this raft

Comments about Question We Must Ask

A question I have asked myself so many times yet the answer eludes me. I think it is beyond our level of three dimensional comprehension to fathom the answers to the question. I like the articulation and rhyme scheme of the poem. A lovely piece of poetry, thanks for sharing. Please read my poem THE PHOENIX STRANGLER.
