The Monkey Puzzle

climbing monkey puzzle trees
on Sunday afternoons
looking for horizons
which couldn’t come too soon
I met a puzzled monkey
or perhaps a chimpanzee
who’s beard was long and white as snow
and he stroked it thoughtfully
and then he said in chattered tones
“search not what’s out of view
just live your life in your own time
and what’s meant will come to you”
