Dear reader, if you want to understand
Then simply try to follow till the end,
Listen well, watch closely, read carefully
But not too closely for then you might miss
The bigger picture, fall in an abyss
Of madness and lose your way, so silly!
Hidden meanings spread all over the place
Seeping from my soul deep into my work
Woven cleverly from delicate lace,
Patterns within patters; my lovely quirk.
All is written in a thousand scriptures,
All is engraved in as many sculptures,
So passionately into time chiseled,
Though will you guess what these words really mean,
Will you manage my many clues to glean?
Or will you be left helplessly puzzled?
To solve these riddles listen thoroughly,
This is important. But is it really…?
Now look closely here – no look over there!
Chase the hat while I pull out the rabbit,
Let the bright golden rain deceive your stare.
You may search the pattern, find the habit,
But will you find answer to your question,
Oh will you comprehend my intention?
On this wild goose chase you might not succeed
But I have to admit, planting the seed
Of doubt and curiosity in your mind,
My dear reader, is quite fun, though unkind…
