This is a mostly prose poem about childhood questions that ended up being a life long quest. Although much has been answered there still remains a mystery.

Another World

Once there was a little girl who liked to lay on her stomach in the grass. She would enter the grass hopper jungle where the grass blades seemed as big as trees and the grasshoppers as big as lions and where she didn't exist at all.

Dreams and Visions

This same little girl liked to lie on her back in the grass and look up at the sky. Her Grandmother had told her the sky was a blue cup turned upside down on the earth. And the Sunday school teacher said that the angels lived there. The little girl liked to imagine the angels walking on their cloud floors. And one day she dreamed an angel was lowered down to her on a swing and the angel told her many things she can't remember......

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

On day the little girl asked her Grandmother what the word tomorrow meant. The Grandmother told her tomorrow will be after you sleep tonight but when you wake up it will be today and yesterday is the time that came before you woke up today. The little girl thought she understood and wondered if, since she remembered what she had done yesterday before she went to sleep maybe she could remember where she came from before she was born..........

Time

The little girl decided to ask her mother, " Mummy, where was I before I was here". Her mother replied, "You weren't anywhere" The little girl could not believe she hadn't been anywhere. So she sat down on the front steps to think. She thought, "If I can remember yesterday maybe I can remember all the way back to where I was before I was here. so she closed her eyes and concentrated remembering the days as far back as she could till she came to a blackness. The little girl thought,"Maybe my mother is right" but she still wasn't sure.......

The Mystery

That little child's still with me
For I still want to know
Whither I've been
And where I'm going to go
And what it's like in grasshopper form
And when will the angels
Their knowledge be shown
