Veni Vidi Perdidi

Tower 42
Photograph by Pacis Urbs

I sought it out there in the field,

amidst the muck and bramble.

I sought it where the forest ends,

and where the masses scramble.

*

I found it in a place of sounds –

a place of frantic action.

I found it in the land of strife,

and violent distraction.

**

I lost it in the highest place –

the tallest place around me.

I lost it there up in the Plains,

and still it does confound me.
