At wit’s end

Oashiss’ (Oil painting on board by Alan Rayner, 1998)

What remains of hope

When all’s been said and done

That can be said and done

But passes by uncared for

Until it can be said and done

No more?

.

Then, hope remains in silent stillness

The catalytic influence of receptive space

That calls all smoothly into and out from place

The everlasting grace

In which all true love and life abides with reason

Beyond the wit of abstract frameworks —

Those homogeneous fields of notion

In which all can only randomly drift

Or be pushed and pulled by manipulative force

Exerted from some place else

Besides
