ANYTHING

This poem was chosen as a 'Best Entry' from the 'Anything Friday' we offer each week where writers and artists can participate by sharing their self expression through different forms of literature and the visual arts. Is a terrain mysterious,
a prairie untrod,
an ocean unfathomable!
"Anything" unravels
an abundance of Everything!
"Anything" holds
key to mystery
of that history
whose tapestry has raised
infinite numerosity.
"Anything" is a grain of sand,
in a tightly closed hand,
So to open for nothing,
would appear on land.
"Anything" is a formless form,
of both harm un-harm.
Anything covers low and high,
A woeful dole,
A piercing cry.
