No Longer Ours

No Longer Ours ~~~~~ The end of an era, so-called. Not the end of all, perhaps. Unknown for now, until Some future now, connected; Contiguous, not, in theory, continuous. Then, is that us, gone? Merely an era in time, between, No relationship but time, flowing, A rolling stream, raging River, fed by tributaries or, one […]

Can You?

Can You? ~~~~~ Life might seem like endless chores; Some say better than heavenly choirs. You would have to live on love alone, Unless endless singing helps to atone. It’s all made up, no matter your belief. Can you find solace in another’s grief? Because, if my faith right, yours is not, Such a sad […]
