wine..cheese..and a perfect baguette…

wine..cheese..

the journey began
with empty pockets
but
along the way
through
studies
skills
were gained
and
through
pain
knowledge
skills
provided for
life’s necessities
pain
provided for
life’s lessons
lessons
of how to travel
the twisted path
of existence
a path travelled
with friends
and
lovers
for short distances
most of whom
found other places
to go
and
other dreams
to pursue
from time to time
youthful passions
like fog
obscured
the vision
making it possible
to be
twice robbed
along this road
of coins earned
as an indentured servant
but
the compass
of hope for tomorrow
gave direction
from moments
of chaos
and
the journey
continued
and
the empty
knapsack
was soon full again
not only
with coins
but
more importantly
with love
love
that makes
seeing the destination
less painful
for
it appears
the journey ends
in a dark void
with
empty
pockets

    Too true, at times it seems that romantic love is a hormonal rush!
    Maybe that’s why it’s said: “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”
