Blue sky with puffy clouds
Unknowing is not a cloud
   that conceals understanding
   requiring explanation to clear the air.
Knowing is the cloud perhaps
   seductively defined by wisps and vapor
  Rorshack shapes of weather spilled like milk across the sky.

 You can analyze the knowing cloud
   but only in the now;
   if you study for just a moment
   you see it morph and merge and dissipate.

Unknowing is instead a gentle breeze
   nudging limits of the knowing cloud;
   not a gale wind bent on smashing proofs
   but a subtle cue to notice
   how knowing waivers.

Unknowing is and must be
   ever present
   to shift the shape of knowing
   and whisper

One thought on “Unknowing
