week 397 ~ what we can’t give them poised here

with 2 comments

me.397what we can’t give them poised here
at this moment of ending
the one thing that makes it clear

to choose from all we hold dear
what matters most partings bring
what we can’t give them poised here

the strength to go beyond fear
find something worth defending
the one thing that makes it clear

that all will be well to steer
their ship wisely wing on wing
what we can’t give them poised here

life’s true path don’t interfere
when they are flung resisting
the one thing that makes it clear

for someday it will appear
suddenly like love or spring
what we can’t give them poised here
the one thing that makes it clear

week 188 ~ this wandering mystery

with 4 comments

this wandering mystery
to the path of the future
and as far as we can see
all’s possible nothing’s sure

to the path of the future
then let us raise our glasses
all’s possible nothing’s sure
for optimists that passes

then let us raise our glasses
to celebrate this new day
for optimists that passes
for faith or hope anyway

to celebrate this new day
suspending conclusions drawn
for faith or hope anyway
promises to lead us on

suspending conclusions drawn
nothing rings true yet but light
promises to lead us on
smiles as time begins to write

nothing rings true yet but light
and as far as we can see
smiles as time begins to write
this wandering mystery

for my graduating students
