On the Trail, Old Beginnings II

Swimming up-river Time brings Past back again, fresh What to do, this time? __________________*_________________ Pursuing purposeful action Swimming upriver process begins Observed by intelligence’s best memory. Identifying all around Sights and sounds, as applicable Partnering away from past Hermit loneliness’s Into glistening, brightened Social Action-days. For travel we each here, singing out our arrivals ‘Hosanna’ birth cry’s as in days of old. This time to do one’s ‘better work’ With right or not... Better beginning’s on track… From right cause, set in place For this, past’s renewal Future curtain opening. Oh, to act rightly See... Stage is well set As we sense it appropriate. This time, we play, balanced in currents Rightly present in this shared, moving Space This wonderful Place in currents... Accidents not withstanding... ‘Game, right on’. Dream I, a learned man In all knowing, the Play’s the thing All parts role-played, as best one can… Telling Self, try to be wiser when finished When this ‘Time’s up’ end occurs… As evaporation calls to another home. With one hand clapping... Hoping the Other in Beyond Understanding Is likewise energized, lively... Glad for our dreaming journey Helping move more curiosities our way... For learning further, growing. All crazy presents, for a job to be well done Gates opening to further futures… Recognizing such a wise being. All events reviewed Carefully wrapped in either/or, for filing Victoriously celebrated as won Or, grieved over, what lost. Ho-hum, stack, build on, replace, or… Hell, just throw it on the Ash heap Misbegotten, with other forgotten ventures. Loosed they all, into the Valley-of-Some-Things… For other memories to find, for better use. For are they not, are we not, remaining An active thread in this, the All of It? Thank God, learning’s the thing And the meaning. Remember this well... ‘Learning’s the Meaning’... For next time’s better preparation… And the time’s after that… All acting out for better effects Thwarting total loss, always. After all… it is these Lessons manifesting That truly flourish... In the before, and after All of It... Ever-fodder for future integration’s. Beyond Understanding manages so well. [to be cont’d]
