Poem: Orange Blossom

Quote of the day: 
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. 
-Lao Tzu 

Would you fall profoundly
Into an abyss.
Of self loathe.
And wavering while meandering.
Life is always amiss.

The rising sun is intoxicated.
Frolicking with the Ostro wind.
Joy is happiness inflated.
Love is the absence of apathy.
With nothing left to leave behind.

As the light disintegrates.
Albeit slower than usual.
And as the days become cut short by darkness.
The overbearing vestige appears to be.
Something significant, or not factored in.

Yielding, wondering (wandering) whether to interchange.
Self preservation is everything.
Mastery and complete control of the inner self and mind.
Rise and fall.
Cause and effect.
Leap of faith.

* Thanks to all who've been asking about my whereabouts. I'm very much well and living, taking stock of life and things. Peace and Love always.
