Life continues to surprise me

the acceptance of the inevitable.


I wonder how Hope walks

following Life with a lamp

treading on corpses of Trust.


The miracle of respiration

in the ever-changing direction of winds.


I look back on solitary footprints

and gaze at the conquered mountain peaks.

Who carried us thru’ it all?


Deriding enemies, backstabbers and traitors,

I continue to seek companionship.


I am in awe of the sailing ship.

navigating thru’ Power and Greed

staying afloat to meet an anchor.


The undercurrents of Faith surprise me

in the overarching theme of Existence.
