Muni-Muni (I Ponder)

Does the sun muni-muni,

of moonbeams, whose cool rays,

reflect the starry night?

 

Do night skies,

no longer star struck,

muni-muni over the majesty of day,

where children laugh and play?

 

What of stifling desert breezes,

and frigid arctic air,

do they dream of switching places,

a momentary relief?

 

Does a bee ever wish,

 a flower to be, or a flower a bee;

a pollination and germination,

reversal?

 

 

I wonder how it’d be,

with no question left unanswered,

life’s mysteries unraveled?

 

 No words to write,

no dreams to dream,

or songs to sing…

 

A world without muni-muni,

at least for me.

  1. Oh. Wow, wow. I love this! Those questions reminds me so much of my favorite E.E Cummings poem, If. I saved it in my phone coz it gave me something to ponder… Here goes:

    E. E. Cummings
    (1894 – 1962)
    If
    If freckles were lovely, and day was night,
    And measles were nice and a lie warn’t a lie,
    Life would be delight,—
    But things couldn’t go right
    For in such a sad plight
    I wouldn’t be I.

    If earth was heaven and now was hence,
    And past was present, and false was true,
    There might be some sense
    But I’d be in suspense
    For on such a pretense
    You wouldn’t be you.

    If fear was plucky, and globes were square,
    And dirt was cleanly and tears were glee
    Things would seem fair,—
    Yet they’d all despair,
    For if here was there
    We wouldn’t be we.
