Skipping and hurdling the hardest
Shockproof to the condition around
Halt to prepare for what tomorrow's abound

A distinctive scent of...

Your Story
We rise in the morning after many sunsets,
Passing death, hurdling heartbreak, sloughing regrets

Off in the distance we see tomorrows, known from pasts
And at last we...

Achievement
Achievement

Achievement…
Is not basking in the glory
It is
The glory of the endeavour

Achievement…
Is not public acclaim
Rather, it is
Personal vindication

Achievement…
Is not looking back with pride
It is
The satisfaction of...

leaping over mountains and towns
ascending long rays of light upon still water
sparking lights of infinite glory mesmerized

covering canvas complete.
Earth now shrunk to smaller ground,
traversed by wandering feet.
Wisdom comes in IV drips,
scarcely supplying demand.
Water is deprived from these...

THAT STRANGE SEPTEMBER DAY
I was young- nearly twenty-
the day innocence became ill.
I remember the funeral well
that ninth month.

Not So Precious Moments

hurdling the
periods
racing toward
some distant goal.

Oblivious to
barking dogs
screaming...

Craft in the Vast Outermost
Open yourself
widen your ears
to a sound not unlike the spinning of a planet
on the verge of ending;
planetary death:
planetary funeral:
planetary mourners:
planetary daisies on gravesoil
dug

Buried Intent and Will
Buried in needless sleep
A personal withdrawal from time and outcomes
In disconnected form
The mind continues, cannot stop

When striving returns to blanket nothing
These dreams rear up
Sideways memories...

Standing steadfastly strong
Conquering the unknown
Together they belong

Daring, Defying
just daring,
defying gravity,
bluish-pinkish fish,
about three feet long,
mocks the violent current
of the gurgling creek that has
just cascaded down from craggy
ledges, watery steps of a giant stairway,
