AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Precious.


In a rising wind
the manic dust of my friends,
those who fell along the way,
bitterly stings my face.
Yet I turn, I turn,
exulting somewhat,
with my will intact to go
wherever I need to go,
and every stone on the road
precious to me.
