Yes I’m way past
vital youth;
or all that early surge of bliss
- so what?!

Other stuff occurs;
good - and not so good -
(the mirrors in my eyeballs turn
to view the sad, bad TV news)

but now and then
I hear a thunder, wind or rain,
as if an ancient power rises
to connect;

like when a hare sits up in sunlight
lepping on the rolling, rolling earth.


  1. hardly ever thunder here
    compared to the midwest

  2. There has been a lot of reflection on the aging process lately. Hope all is well, and that lots of good 'stuff' occurs for you. Glad you can hear something other than the news, and that you put it to paper to help the rest of us. And thank you for adding to my vocabulary.

  3. " if an ancient power rises
    to connect;"

    I know this part... nice.

  4. I get a mix of emotions in this piece. Both comfort and discomfort. Storms and sunshine... but so what. It's what makes the world go round.

    I loved the finishing with the hare (I'm assuming 'Lepping' is a typo for 'Leaping'). Brought to mind Watership Down.

    A really enjoyable write.
