Questions And Answers - Poem by David Taylor

My head is in the stars
my feet deep in the earth
and my heart, it beats in you.
The answer often lies
but a question can be true.
The question has the answer
the question is in the stars,
is in the earth, is in the heart.
Be careful of the answers
that seem to lie in you.

    Quite mesmerising and meaningful.... Wonderful poem and an inspiration for all, David Taylor. It certainly does sound like a father is giving his child advice. (Report)Reply

    What a joy to read this seemingly simple verse, underlying this seeming simplicity theme is a thousand questions, and, as you warn, though the questions are everywhere the answers are deceptive and come from within the soul of the questioner. Wnderful work - a joy to read your poems it is. (Report)Reply
