(Feeling) Perplexed

Life
is a series of
Zen
koans, questions and
moral
quandaries to promote
reflection
yet we are left feeling
perplexed.
Like trying to play
Sudoku
and finding numbers
baffling.
Or pondering life after
death,
knowing there’s no
answer
to be known in the
now.
Feeling perplexed feels like the
world
is a puzzle, one where we must get
curious
about the solution, then accepting
I
may never find it, and
living
a rich, deep, trusting
life
….anyway.
