having studied the issue…

i’ve been
struggling
with life issues
trying to
discern
what’s  important
mulling over
all
the options
and
how I should
spend my time
as i started
to discuss this
with aunt bea
she
took out
a coin
and
balanced
it
upon
a thin string
just
for a brief moment
it stood there
suspended
in time
and then
spinning
falling
quickly
to the ground
and
she said
that’s
life
best
live it

night winds…

breath flowing
across the face
of timeless dreams
where lost souls reside
beside the pool of desire
tossing the coin of the realm
into its depths
making wishes
instead of prayers
