learning to fly (lesson two)

never look down. because that is not where you want to go.

always look up. because that is where you want to go.

a daywatch into night

Distill Life

mad, monochrome road
lie resting under
last day's mirror slumber
never something to tell
lingering the day like silent
and somewhere a City.

such brown paper bags
swirl sullen question marks
on unseen air
unless a chariot
of winds and horses

waiting for
to willow and

and somewhere a City.

I once heard you there.
You whispered storm clouds.
Now. Distill, be still, still so
sorrows dimensionless
paste in photographs
for all the past to see

We give up the ghost
leaving long dead tracks
behind us; no griefs, no fears
nor eyes to feel

We need no roads
for when to stand
- stupefied, solitary -
only image, never daring
to beyond

then somewhere
a City

all in all

i am here; this is where i am right now.

this is my life so far.

to think of it.

all those moments i remember. all those moments i do not remember right now. all those moments i cannot remember ever again, but will dream of, some time in some twilight night.

this, here, now, is my life so far. all twenty-six years of it.

i look back, and think. i look forward, and think.

i think i haven't done too bad so far.

this, i can realize. and smile.

things to come, things to be, things to pass. things i will remember, things i will wish never to remember, things i will feel and never feel again. happy moments, sad moments. moments in which i cry. moments in which i laugh. moments with bare feet. moments with shoes. moments which i will want never to have happened. moments i will never want to give back to life but rather keep them to relive, and relive.

this is my life so far. all twenty-six years of it.

this, i can realize. and smile.

more to come now.
