Visions from
yesteryear struggle
to remain
descending farther into

Is it right
to lighten the grip?
a moment
to weigh varied directions
path free of error

  1. “In doing good, avoid fame. In doing bad, avoid disgrace. Pursue a middle course
    as your principle. Thus you will guard your body from harm, preserve your life,
    fulfil your duties by your parents, and live your allotted span of life.” – Chuang Tzu.

    What happened to line 11 and its 7 syllables?

  2. Those are interesting statements that could take us in several directions. Memories/visions can make us happy, sad or at the extreme terrified. They may fade for a time but do surface to prompt these potential emotions.

I appreciate your thoughts!
