INTO LIFE WE TURN and FALL  (11-15-04, Sunrise, Galveston Island, Texas)


in our collective
humanity
each of us
are slowly
spun
turned
and formed
revised
and honed
finessed
by lifes
perpetual lathe
as its
constant
silent blade
gradually shapes
evolves
transforms
us all
along
our journeys way
into
too seldom
ever truly
fully understanding
who we
wholly are
but rather
at least
into
eventually learning
who we are
continuously
becoming
with each
of us
in our
last breaths
hopefully realizing
that we
are only
little masterpieces
of sacred
incompletion
yet despite
our personal sense
and all
our futile
egoic claims
of individual
uniqueness
in the end
each
of us
both great
and small
may finally
come to see
that we
are little more
than
fallen leaves
surrendered to
lifes
timeless
winds
