Requiem ~ Donning the robe of the Alchemist

in A-major life


for every human life

is somewhere glorious

and must not reject the holy

but ever sing the heart’s agenda

to the extended darkness

and cry light, light,


this is what I am

this is what I must do


In two weeks I shall be leaving my job. For a long time now I have felt trapped. Useless. Lost. The dreams in my heart fell to the shadows, near death. In August I will be 50 years old. Time to simplify. Should I continue to watch my dreams go adrift like a child pursuing a lost balloon, ever in the mind but never within sight or reach? Or should I become the bird and find the dream, bring it home to nest? It would have to be one or the other for me. I have chosen the haunting other.
