2018 Sonnet 57

Deep, deep thoughts! Did you ever think of that?
Swimming in profound imagination!
Great Sincerity! Straining at a gnat.
Swallowing the camel of elation.

Deep, deep thinking. Meditate on drinking
Wisdom of the ages from the sages.
Deep, deep thinking while angels are winking
At the meaning we are gleaning from pages

Of the Book where we look to justify
What we think. We want instead to know it.
We know what doesn’t show is just a lie
Unless we spy chapter/verse to show it.

Help me understand the line I swallow
Lest I drown in deep thoughts where I wallow.
