The Far Side of Wonder

 

• • •

 

the far side of wonder
is insanity

wonder reaching
beyond the necessary limits
of the sane mind

wonder pushed
by vision
or intensity
to the world undreamed of

wonder released
like the dove
from the Ark

circling far overhead
and failing
to return
with a sprig of olive
