Should We?

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.


If only our minds were free its there for us to see

how nature does our world adorn.

Just look, behold the dew drop on a fine and crispy morn;

kissed by the sun, like a jewel it hangs suspended  … … …

shimm’ring, as if alive, with each caress of early breeze

it quivers … … . it stops … … . it quivers again as if to fall.

Will it crash hard to the ground, or is there more to be found

in the arms of the sun which gives it light

and gives it warmth?

That, fate will decide.

But what of us?

Do we care to pause for nature’s wonders,

or rush around and fail to hear and see what is ours and free?

We could, if we but tried.

Should we?

{A poem by Ian Gardner}
