Questions For Bob

The answers, indeed, may be blowing in

the wind, but two

big questions 

remain –

from

whence

does the

wind blow and

what will we do

once we hear those answers that the wind brings?

For Your Bemusement

What was, is, and will be is present in

 me, in you, and

in all things.

What if

we

paused

and asked,

as many

have, the question,

Why is there something rather than nothing?

At The Center With Me And I

Upset today by one more broken thing,

self-pity and

blame flooded

over

me.

I

can choose

to sink or

I can stretch to

 float and feel the sun soothe my tender skin.

Confederates In Gray

Lost in thought, I almost missed the soft touch

of that small hand

upon my 

arm. “Could

you

help

Nana

zip her coat?

Her hair’s gray too.”

Nana and I smiled and got to work.

What Strange Creatures We Can Be

In order to save a few minutes, we

speed up and lose

our pleasure 

in what’s

here.

We

rush to

pursue what

isn’t here, then,

exhausted, we start all over again.

It Is Enough

Feeling gratitude for a number of

unspecified 

things, though I

could name

more

than

a few

if I had

to. It’s enough

to bask in unenumerated joys.

You Never Know

    When my pen is poised and the words refuse

to flow, it could

be a sign 

to dive

deep,

keep

silent,

and simply

sit and wait ’til

inspiration strikes or I fall asleep.
