    left behind
    where we trod
    signatures of being

    You've proded imagination Martin... isn't that what this is all about_?

    the crazy rain
    the gusty runlets
    are depressing the field

    darleen, magyar, if only this was what it's all about. some equate "it" to zen, an enlightenment, self-discipline, innate intuition, or perchance scripture. low(lo) and behold, some would say all i've said is one and the same
    i beg to differ, but i drift.
    ask yourselves what it's all about; is 5-7-5 conceivably a happenstance...

    spring day-
    a summer shower cleanse my thoughts
