Fear and Wonder
The headlights from the oncoming vehicle
held the stunned animals in their grasp
The beams like a claw clasping around its prey
An unholy ray screaming silently into the night
Distant, but penetrating.
Approaching still closer,
terror in their hearts,
the vehicle turned off the road
And transformed into a rainbow
Dazzling colours and many forms.
Behold a crystal,
the prism of light brightened up the whole vista.
The minds of the people surveying the scene
expanded into multiple universes
and travelled along unchartered paths
discovering the unlimited options
of their thoughts.
We stand before fear and wonder throughout our lives
and should face each one in its turn.
Carrying ourselves on from one to the other,
and digesting all in our minds,
refreshing continuously, recreating ourselves at every turn.
