The Last Quarter 2010

           The Last Quarter

So potent,

Certain in its outer limits,

Inner probabilities.

Twenty-five more years is short –

Curt, brief, abrupt:

Yes, interrupted.


That as Whitman said,

Each hour of the day & night…a…miracle”

Reminds one to live moments well,

Fulfilled and focussed,

Not a minute missed,

No nano-second masked

But basked in, kissed,

This mission, task,

A last and slow dismemberment.
