an ecclesiastical exercise

meaningless
             life's like that
just chasing the wind
emptiness..plus..
                     nothing
what
     could make the difference
when
     everything
       has
        its
          season
&each
    has eternity 
               in the heart
time
      waits not
providence
     with joy&sorrow
&
  contentment
                             is   elusive
without perspective

lonely&isolated
   bereft
        of wisdom
seeking a bridge
             over troubled waters
                                            alone
we stand in awe
in the emotion
            of the moment
living a dream
                    soaring
                         on eagle's wings
imagination
unleashed
      receptive to whispered
words

nostalgia
    rose-tinted 
      espies
the elusive memory
of yesterdays
where
     stumbling blocks
                       evaporate
                            into the ethereal
of enigmas
         revealed
with
mysteries
       made manifest
&riddles
       resolved
an invitation 
             to enter
  
                  tomorrow
remains alone
without guarantee
            hand in hand
the future faced
tomorrow trusted
                anticipated
                   with joy
with love&
              promise
                   certain&
                            sure

seize the day

the tongue of the
                       wise
brings healing
