Circles.Posted: April 17, 2012
What makes a person try again,
Second chances, third and fourth?
Like an animal in a pen
With no where else to go,
Darting eyes, circling the perimeter,
In resignation and yet
At any moment that gate may open,
At any moment a burst of hope,
Energy, Herculean Leap
Over that fence, over
It could be over
At any moment.
Thank you to all who wrote and/or read, last post and others. I am so sorry for not yet replying. It is a difficult time at the moment, but “Naught may endure but Mutability” as we know, so I am sure that it is just a passing dark cloud, or two. My mind is cuing Annie’s “The sun will come out … tomorrow …” Ugh. Never even saw that, but I sure do know the song, and the voice singing it. It is somehow in the file of my childhood. Interesting how our minds work. Sometimes That’s just Entertainment, sometimes our minds must think we simply need to be soothed. I shall embark on a long walk before dinner and then maybe (you may remember this post): go to a movie this evening …
I hope your week is happy! ~ Lily
p.s. The wordpress feature “Read” that shows me your new posts, is not working. It seems to be loading ad infinitum. Anyone else ever had this happen? Is there a way to reset it, or something?
