Endings are endings

final

finite

but only in this world

this realm

there are others we can visit

as we leave this one

of this I am sure

because I believe

in the unbelievable

and cast aside all fear

to pursue

the incomparable

adventure.

Cars line up

on the city streets

bumper to bumper

somehow pedestrians

weave between them

the sounds of horns

shouts, a distant jackhammer

air brakes on a bus

deep down base

from a passing two door

electric yellow

demanding attention

ending the red light monotony.

Raspberry canes sprout

through the empty eye-sockets

in the sun bleached skull

half hidden in the leaves

of yesterday’s autumn

reminders that tomorrow

may never come for you

but it comes nonetheless.

Wolves pad softly

through the forest

keen noses

take in the life

that they pursue

no good

no evil

life and death are their gods

every day

forever.

Incense sticks smoke

fragrant

a soft breeze pushes

small floating lamps

pushing flower petals

out of their way

upon the milk stained waters

of the Ganges

chants of mantras echo

over and across

as the sun slips under.

New blossoms open

upon a sunny spring day

azure skies above.

I believe

in the unbelievable

a foundation

with footings

anchored upon bedrock

strength

not my own.

Rain spatters the glass

of the windshield on the bus

wet passengers ride.

The fly floats with the current

down the rocky turbulence

to spin through the deceitful

eddy in the current

light rain spots the river’s

smooth surface

hiding the lurking trout beneath.
