Life unfolds

Life unfolds once then it is lost
as are we all, who cling too long

Welcome the lost found wanting more,
released from vice they’re blind to 

I search for joy, need paradise
(open the way) and show me in

I’m but a man — simple, jealous —
thankful for you not being so.

For the prompt at dVerse where we are invited to delve into
the allure of Korean folklore, poetry form and myth.

  1. This is wonderfully deep and poignant! I so love the way you give us a glimpse into the human psyche especially; “Welcome the lost found wanting more, released from vice they’re blind to/I search for joy, need paradise/(open the way) and show me in.” Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt 💝💝
