Straight Stretch, East of Susanville, California, United States of America

Straight Stretch

Oft times the path ahead
Seems crystal clear and straight

Still I proceed with caution
Keep my eye upon the road

For sudden curves unforeseen
For living things which cross the lane
For side roads leading from the route

Some could throw me from my course
And I could lose my way

Some may form a barrier
Force me to a halt

Some may lead me far astray
Distract me from my goals

Some may offer opportunity
A better route to go

And which of these
I may not know
Until I drive
Some many miles beyond

Youthful Halcyon, Sanur, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia

The Golden Lie of Youth

I recall the halcyon
Of inviolable youth
When life
Stretched out before us
As an infinite loop of fun
While pain and suffering
Seemed ephemeral
As an all-better kiss
And adulthood perceived
As a condition of denial
That play is anything but
A full-time endeavour

Long since has that glitter faded
Pain and suffering
Joined now as companions
But little desire has this adult
To deny a child
The pleasure of play
Rather play along
Perhaps to live again
The golden lie
Of youth
