Humans plan and God laughs. He certainly has been laughing at me over the last couple of weeks. My to-do list is ever growing. I can hardly keep up. There's no need lamenting that there aren't enough days in the week or hours in each day.
I won't bore you with the details of my list. Instead, I'm sharing a poem (in lieu of one of my favorite blogs from last year). It is a love poem. The subject is not a person or a place. It is about my passion and absolute love of writing.
I only fit well
between these two pages,
gliding across time
engaging my various faces.
The ones that work
versus those that won’t-
the me’s that are the problem
are at times, the anecdote.
What could poison the air
sweetens my paper.
Experience has taught me well
to avoid unfulfilling capers
and to retreat from foolish things
before I become entangled and caught-
to learn successful strategies
from the battles I have fought.
Peace, for much too long
had been the prize of my fight.
A soul without peace
is a gut wrenching sight
and since the spirit of truth
has wrapped itself in my soul,
nothing will satisfy me
until my story’s been told.
My eyes remained on this prize,
evolution created its difference.
The spirit of truth communed with my soul
to form an everlasting commitment.
Is this love or a distraction?
Whichever way each life goes down-
there are wars that must be fought
and we all must choose our ground.
Paper is my favorite.
