Eventualities

Golden Ones

The older we begin to see form
How the calm comes in after storms
Balances and patterns hammer out
Prayers are being answered to the devout

The water ebbs back after the crests
Sun’s setting is always in the west
You can never add too much to stew
Old lives are multiplied by the new

  2. Young man, this is a lovely treatise on wisdom that comes with age. If such is the case, in ten years, I’ll be a freakin’ genius! (to my mind, at least…)
    Nicely done, Michael! Amy
