    FREE OF PROBLEMS

    Can we ever reach a point
    where unexpected vicissitudes
    no longer hound our days?

    The ominous storm is brewing closer
    and I stand alone
    at the edge of time, or so it seems:
    but is there salvation in time alone?
    Can we ever be free in hope
    of something sweet in the future?
    Can I escape the rain
    by wishing it away for another day?

    Dark clouds erase an azure sky;
    gale winds bow reeds and whip tree tops;
    pounding rains ride upon the winds;
    heavy showers pelt the ground:
    there is no cover here for my body.

    Cold and wet I come to realize
    this is the truth of now:
    whether the sun shone an hour ago –
    whether it will shine an hour from now,
    this moment is all I have:
    like it or not
    this ‘present’ is the key to life’s door.

    WindWalker ... another very nice peace

    This reminds me of those days when i learned
    to be thankful for the condition of my life
    as it is "right now"

    thank you for this

    :heart:
