Fortune- in Reality-

favors not just the Brave,

but those with Wit enough

to regard the Grave.



What dreams have I- locked-

in some yellowing Scroll-

that Others will discover- nod-

or- ignore Them- all-


I wish I could get away

from all the distress,

all the pressure,

all the uncertainty.

I wish I had the means to

simply leave

and find a quiet place

where I could stop and look,

not think, just observe,

leaving all familiar faces behind me.

I wish I could find a place

where I wouldn’t have to worry

about being found

becauseĀ I wouldn’t be lost, anyway.

I just want to find a place

where I have no past

and no future

to worry about.

Where is the crossing

of the stars? Not Here,

as is desired-

Youths wish it’d appear-


though- Consequences

be neglected- Outcomes-

rarely what expected,

or what one dreams-

The Steps

Memorize the steps

you took, the Path left

will help as you move

forward, while you Journey yet.


Today’s date

attached to four names

I don’t recognize.

And I wonder

about names

attached to headstones,

about futures

attached to children

along with memories.

And these are people

who will only be remembered if

they fall under these circumstances-

if they had children,

if they are a character in someone’s story.

We remember historical figures

and celebrities

because of their national renown,

but who remembers

the little people

with their names printed


in newsprint?

Gulls are Harbingers-

as much as Robins, yet,

not appreciatedĀ as part

of Spring’s welcoming Quartet.
