The Act .......of Nothing & Everything

Updated on November 12, 2013

Minor thoughts,

enormous reach

trails that lead

to nowhere.

Marvelous effects

of enigmatic judgments

reminds us of

efforts insincere.

Time that’s ticking

backward assails

us with

a sneer.

While enticing us

with fates

that are far

to austere.

Steps that

lead us backward

bring consequences

to severe.

Yet we keep

on disappearing

with the hope

that we’ll appear.

      WOW ...steps that move backward. So oftentimes we get stuck in yesterday and can't advance toward tomorrow. "If I had only ..." Escapes our lips so many times. Thanks once again for the beauty of verse.
