Knowing You Cannot Understand

There are times
-if you pay attention
and want –
when you can drop
into understanding.

It is a drop, not a rise
we cannot rise
until we drop
and touch our feet
on the soil of our souls
and feel the grit
and cold reliability
and home
of our foundation.

I have dropped
into knowing
dropped into
away from the
clouds of understanding
with their distracting
lightening and thunder
and fog.

What’s the difference
between knowing
and understanding?
The first is true
the second is impossible.

Imagine a life without understanding
a life lead by something other
than head or heart
but using both.

I dropped down
I saw where it all started
and how I keep myself
in the clouds
of understanding

I don’t know if I’ll stay down here
but I sure hope so
there is peace here
and love
and belonging
and forgiveness.

I don’t know if I’ll stay down here
but I sure hope so.
