Dig

To intellectualize myth, desire – 

the analytical approach crumbles,

becoming grit underfoot;

providing traction, perhaps,

useful fractal before one slips,

yet again.

 

We live,

we breathe,

we interact.

This is the dance:

choices and consequences.

 

Joy is the offspring of accepting

these noble truths;

bitterness arises from cowardice:

the should-haves, could-haves,

didn’t, won’t, damn it.

 

Life is more precious than we know.

Don’t waste a moment being stubborn.

Consciousness unfolds its gates;

we have but to walk through them,

unresisting.

  2. The choices are real, and I agree with you about life being more precious than we realize. Enjoy it all.

  3. “Life is more precious than we know” will be my thought for today. All the best, Diane
