Daveda Gruber's POEM OF THE DAY, AUGUST 19,2011

Too Late

Speculating each decision taken;

contemplating sum of time to be taught.

Angel reminiscing those mistaken

deeds resolved upon selected for naught.

Incomprehensible is frame of age;

realization awakens afar.

Perceiving, too late, conclusion’s gauge;

mind is never absent a vicious scar.

Not comforted when questions still remain.

Why cycle has obligation to dwell

timing vision of knowledge to attain;

within circle, nay, willing to dispel.

Here she is again. The blond I looked up is very talented. Every thing I click on with google has sub-extentions. She sure writes good poetry. Pretty lady is every where I look. I'm not complaining. Her smile brightens any page. Sam Chase
