Something Comes

It’s time,
For something new,
Something unexpected…

Something,
That will change,
The way I think,
And feel

Something,
That,
Will challenge me,
That will make life,
Seem more real

It must be,
Uncomfortable,
Enough,
To force a stretch,
Into the unknown

It’s time,
To just -  let
go,
Of all the past footholds…

Prepare,
“It”
will change,
The way I think,
And feel

Something,
That,
Will revive me,
Renew the fire,
In my heart

It must have,
Imagination
Enough,
To guide my path,
Into the unknown

It’s now,
I need it now
I must rise like Phoenix…

Accept,
The changes,
In how I think,
And feel

Something,
Here,
Now offers me,
A new life path,
To trod on

I must have,
Courage to go forth,
Enough,
To guide my path,
Into the unknown



The Hunter’s Tale

Marksman, tell me your dream,
How you dashed across magnificent hills,
Spraying snow gaily into the air,
While the late afternoon sun burned on your back;

Tell me how you followed the tracks,
Each tiny print,
Leading your deeper into the aboreal brush;

Mention for me each detail of the rugged tree bark,
And piercing burrs,
As they it roughed up your favourite green britches,
Clawing, in a vain attempt to hold you back;

Restrain yourself,
From sharing facets of your carbine loading,
Yet please, glorify the day,
With furthers edicts of nature’s wonders;

Make real for me,
The hare’s triumphant escape,
For
I shall hail his continuance,
On life’s circular path!
