With this mytho-poetic reflection, A Question for You, Larry Glover continues exploring the heart, soul and science of what it is to say “Yes!” to life.
Who is man?
In the scheme of things
I mean, and in the particulars.
Who are we, I and you?
Us and them?
Have you ever stopped
long enough to ask
such questions of the soul?
Of your soul?
Of the world soul?
How about the 80,000 year old Aspen Grove,
Pando, living in Utah?
Does it have a soul? A spirit?
Is there an innate essence
an inherent presence within its being?
Might this Being be touched or felt or sensed
with a love carried in one’s heart?
Seen with eyes wiling to see?
if a man’s eyes
can so open to beauty
as to be transformed by it
make love to a tree, let’s say,
or a wild stag leaping silently
through the forest trembling green
then I ask you:
What is a man?
And who pray tell, am I?
And who or what then, are you?
