Happenstance Arts 


I let my mind meander, and words find me…

If only for a moment, it’s a miracle to see…


Guided through a fog

By shallow morning sun

All which lay concealed is found


Perplexing past problems, just reflections of a time

When questions are asked, and answers are lost

If this is ideal, then what is the cost?


How a spring’s breeze,

Can echo through the trees

As forlorn feelings fall


Someplace, a point in space obscured by memories

Exists sweet and pleasant dreams


If such a place lay here

It isn’t as it seems

Wandering wistfully, wanting wilderness to wash away


Spiralling while I dance

Locked in silver trance

Splendid, until it’s not true

Splendid, until it’s not true

About The Author
BeNjamyn Upshaw-Ruffner Former Editor-in-Chief “I’ll never know everything about anything, but I’d like to know something about everything.” - BeN/Isaac BeN is the former Editor in Chief of The Insider, now an alumni contrbutor. An embodiment of the duality between Rational and Emotional thought, this universe’s version of BeN is presumed to be a human living on PNF-404 prior to the planet’s sixth mass extinction. In the currently observed timeline, he is born in a Quebec, Canada during the information age. He is very skilled at utilizing the English language, alongside philosophical ideas, as a means to an end. However, he doesn’t seem to have any tangible goal. Everything he seeks is very abstract. He often implies that the entirety of everything is itself a work of art being consumed in some unfathomable way. I am Isaac Dinotno, the name he has given to the voice in his mind. He and I are in perpetual communication. BeN claims to have experienced astral projection during peak emotional periods of his life, though I can’t verify this. If you are reading this now, you can find BeN at Concordia University.
