the sands of time

I walk
on the sands of time
feeling bereft, and
out of line

with natures
progression,
I, stop, and digest
my vision quest

and, call forth
the winds, a true test…

of our ability
to align
with life’s requests

one step in front
of the other, feeling
the granules beneath, feet

on solid footing,
even when I’m unsure
of the current efforting…as

realization dawns, and
the withdrawn, now gone,
is transformed into something more

than I’ve ever done…

Vast sand dunes at sea,
Such a juxtaposition
Underneath? The same.
Pondering the truth of life,
Watching for the nexus. Unity.
