New world

Enter the light uncluttered,
Tableau unfiltered, fresh,
Eyes leaping shape to shape,
Thought is curious, but familiar,

Logic blessedly beyond ken,
Free from freedom; empty of cold,
Wonder abounds without convention,
Unburdened with structure or form,

Thrust into powder’s odd embrace,
Soft without caring or passion,
Tempting to learn, absorb, to ask,
Novelty’s newness awes in brilliance,

What volunteer’s insane choice,
To trade warmth for curious,
Looking leading, soul searching,
Lost forever in a heartbeat,

Honest warmth returns slowly,
Timid, unsure, growing and gaining,
A riddle to unwind;
A life to live.
