Standing On The Porch


Writing from memories of peace,
feeling safe and secure in my inner sanctum.

Living and loving on edges of life, making
the most of every moment, instilling a
silence of purpose into each one.

Solemnly, I move forward, smiling interiorly
with a feeling of humor and letting it fill
me to overflowing.

Heart and soul standing on the porch of life,
looking out at all the wonderful pictures of
thoughts when younger.

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
