There is only the fragrance
a slight hint of beyond
where all senses react
to discover the source

each with its adeptness
captures bits and pieces
and subjects them
to rigorous trials

only when acting together
in harmony and peace
are they poised to
reveal glimpses of the whole

Yet one always claims
it has the answer
which it cannot speak
and the flavor is lost

Again and again they arise
and then quietly subside
these waves of passionate query
which never cease
keeping us wet with wonder
as we silently breath
