The Woods are Dark and Deep ( a poem of reconciliation)

The woods are dark and so deep...
The woods are dark and so deep...
some mysteries are not meant to bo solved...
some mysteries are not meant to bo solved...
All is not solved in heaven or on Earth...
All is not solved in heaven or on Earth...
The dark hides many answers...
The dark hides many answers...
Some answers are evident...
Some answers are evident...
The human mind is quite complex...
The human mind is quite complex...
Some fears are created in the mind and some are justified...
Some fears are created in the mind and some are justified...
Some solutions are down to earth and others are in the clouds...
Some solutions are down to earth and others are in the clouds...


The woods are dark and deep there,

On a night lit by the full of the moon,

Shadows cast by the tallest of trees,

And in a fright, we are not immune.


Screams and shrieks, a loudest howl,

Raises the hairs upon our necks,

While only bravest in their own quest,

Seek answers, to all suspects.


Is a Big Foot, Yeti, Sasquatch or Baboon,

Perhaps just a monkey, or maybe, two,

So many observations, the sounds heard,

We may not even know what to do.


Is it a figment of the imagination,

Or maybe just wishful, or a weird event,

An explanation to the meaning of ghosts,

Of an evil. that's not heaven sent?


A three eyed snakelike serpent, seen,

Or is a hairy and smelly old beast,

A metallic man. without any hands,

To be a strange flying object, at least.


Skinny white creatures with big heads,

And eyes, dark, and so very wide,

Makes us forget the circumstance,

And the real truth, well does hide.


Endless progressions of patients' protest,

As many of their psychiatrists, too,

What is both seen and heard in the dark,

To exist, and is not anything, so new.


A witnessed event is quite relevant,

Depends upon the ones involved,

Some things are meant to understand,

While others, never are solved


The human mind, so complicated, complex,

Full of mystery and is so very deep,

Much as a forest, so full of tall trees,

And on guard, even as we all sleep.


The stars at night and their brother moon,

Attests to this dilemma, unsolved spell,

All are a part of the universal heart,

and what is not meant for us, ever to tell.

A great poem whonu and I especially loved

The stars at night and their brother moon,

Attests to this dilemma, unsolved spell,

All are a part of the universal heart,

and what is not meant for us, ever to tell.

Voted up and shared.

Wishing you a wonderful New year my friend.

Eddy.

The mind certainly is complex, whonu. Some minds are tormented, while others are devoid. Where is reality? Reality is different for each and every one of us. You've made me think, whonu!

I'm once more drawn to this poem. Each time I see or hear of some unknown, such as lights in the night, creatures seen on lonely roads, ghostly spirits. Since I was a young child it has been my circumstance to witness such oddities. I suppose this may be listed under the extra spices of life that we may never quite resolve. Blessings my friends. whonu
