Sweet idea

How sweet is the

idea of eternity,

a realm in which you

are not captured by

tyrannical time

and not held by

its unforgiving grip,

but free to be

in the totality of

all that is tender now.


But like all sweet ideas

they do not sit

so well with this

bag of earthly flesh

that holds you bound

in this time and place,

and in the history

of where you came from,

what you are,

and what you are

most likely to be.
