Strange offerings

I am a man and a person

caught between what might be

and what is, between

the promise and the action,

betwixt today and tomorrow,

in this moving fluid of life.


Nothing  has been

what I expected it to be,

but then again am I what

I expected to be?


And though I am caught

and though life moves in its

mysterious flow of

joy and woe,

I am here now grateful

for adventures had and

secret dreams that never

came to pass and surprising connections

that come upon me like a flood.


Yes I am here, for how long

I do not know, but I am here

to enjoy the strange offerings

of the universe and feel the

privilege of what I have learned.
