In The Quest...

For love,
Supercilious is tedium,
For by middle life
We should become aware
Title and gold will wait
an eternity at heaven's gate, for
what money secures immortality,
fills in our last chapters
with a great love or lesser -
but a love story nonetheless.

We start out as children
and end up much like children;
in between it's mostly puff and veneer
with but the patina of our altruism
and humanism remaining,
that we have been able to mount
in our less than ideal lives,
lived out in a less than perfect world.

Therefore, to quest,

To glimpse the colors
Of love in Autumn
And the glimmer of lodestones
Glinted in the midst of Winter
And reflected in your eyes,
As I pass this place
And have this joy to brace me
Amongst shifting sands
And timeless space.
