Understanding


To understand
To grasp, to know
Is to interpret and perceive

Yet what is perceived
May be mis-interpreted
And mis-understood

Can you know love?
Can dissecting it with thoughts
Help you understand

Perceiving love’s beginning
Do you understand its ending?
Or the journey in between

How can we interpret love
Its blossoming birth
its fading fatality

Something’s cannot be grasped
Much less understood
Something’s are for the living
  
It is in the living, rather than
Grasping and perceiving

We understand with gentle knowing.
