Greater Than Thought

Capacity is a wonderful word describing the maximum amount of; you name it. Circumstances is also a word that is used often when we can not say what it is that brought us here, “It is just our circumstances.” Circumstances are like a wave that washes over our temporal experience they ┬ácan be good, bad or indifferent.

Open Veins

Open Veins - Aaron Blakeley - Daily Haiku Web Comic

The older I have gotten the less I have been interested with just putting up with stuff for the sake of putting up with stuff. Maybe this is good, maybe it is not. I am sure God will lead me and correct me because he loves me.

So let me drag into the light a story that is metaphorical. There once was a people in a society that was considered the best the world had produced thus far.

The Wall of Fog Does Churn and Reach

If the wall of fog does churn and reach If it breaks revealing the sun If creepy entropy robs my marrow If I find myself in peaceful rest If everything I own was suddenly dust If everything I own was suddenly gold If I captured a sunrise in a poem If I alienated everyone I know If it was suddenly illegal to be me If I am celebrated on high Though I be blessed Though …
