A threshold past the heavens

are you catching on
are you catching onto how each cloud reflects the sky in its own view
bringing color and form in every possible hue
are you catching onto how each cloud gives the sky purpose

and how the sky finds purpose with the clouds
and that we see the final scene
with all of it’s everlasting depth and beauty

are you catching onto how this scenery is the secret to all we yearn
that it’s all we need to learn
every breeze plows the clouds apart
fashioning each strobe most delicately through the horizon
there’s wisdom in every whispered wonder in whatever cloud that descends a little lower than usual

do you see the magnitude before your eyes
what is arrogance
what is pride
what is ownership
when that which is beyond us
is past our bewilderment

what little is left
but love
something we can acquire

a threshold of its own
a bridge that leads to further discovery
creating beauty from all the past and misery
as the sun sets away last of it’s days fusing light
to fall in love with the moon
and enlighten another path
that can only be seen in the night
and each star to twinkle us through time until we set again

and again, and again.

for us to find a reason to smile again,

and again.


Of course I wrote about Time

Time isn’t for us to beat

it’s to be consumed

for we all need time to grow
and time to spend
to generously lend
it’s not for haste
nor be vulgar and spit and waste it
health wealth and glory
it’s more than all this- it’s the whole story
with every blink we need to see
and breath we take to brisk and shuffle
through each step we risk
time is just that
from seed to pod and leaflet to stem and
finally once bloomed
a marvelous gem
time is our miracle to consume
eager to be used
to create things anew
leave old things to pass
to overcome the sadness, Alast
bury the madness
and let it be dwindled by the spindling
happiness, so vast
it’s the space to think and solve
to play up ways to evolve
to control and conquer
everything that we’re meant for
sophisticated and intricate
unique with no redundancy
despite the hypnotic intervals
the perfectly calculated seconds
something fresh and clean
is ready to take its start
only if you give it time
and do your own part
