Rekindled

Dreams & desire
An uncertain future
An experience from past haunts again in present
Hope gets rekindled in present

Life

O drops be bound, a baby brook
That babbles by with sparkling look
To streams that roll with rock and bends
To old rivers, until land ends.

Point-blank

Nothing remains forever
Absolutely nothing
Past
Present
Future
It’s all an illusion
The fact that a question did not get its answer in the past
Point-blank.

Current

Like water flowing
over timeworn rocks,
I am weathered
by the constant grind
Hoping that I,
like the rocks,
will be cultivated
into something
more beautiful

Scatter-Brained

Where do I begin on my to-do list—
Piles of unfinished business to complete?
I have started & stopped countless projects.
For my time & attention, they compete.

A novel idea arrives in my head.
I gush with excitement at its greatness.
I even voice my plan for its fruition.
Soon, I forget and lament its lateness.

As it was…

As it was with warriors of old –
slaughtering wild beasts
for their wives & children,
to sustain them
& prove themselves –

so it is with you;
carrying the corpses of spiders
on the soles of your feet,
in sacrifice to me
& my phobia.

My Faith

I still hang on to your promise.
Years have passed & died.
I know you still crawl & claw
towards its fulfillment —
& that it’s not yet broken.

Dicey

Either this thing or that thing
Something will change the future for sure
Intuition
Anticipation
Expectation
Difficult to figure out for sure

Paused for a while

Once in a while
Somewhere
Something
Skipped the mind
No, it was not a deviation
An illusion had gathered in mind
Paused for a while
Returned
Regained to the present moment in time.
