Finite

 

Running In The Pines

 

If we did not have death to

Remind us to

Value our time 

Here,

Life would be

A pointless marathon.

It seems we 

Must have an

Ending Time to

Appreciate the

Finite & Numbered days,

Each precious moment of 

Joy.

Revelation

Thursday Trail

 

There’s a tremendous amount of good in people that is often obscured from view.

For whatever reason,

Fear, insecurity, resentment, the world makes them hide it.

Reveal the good.

Kiss

Peace

Each day I Kiss 

The Earth

Beneath which he is interred.

In some measure it is a symbolic

Wish that I could Kiss

His furry head.

In another way,

It is to thank 

the Great Cosmos for this most

Wondrous and Precious gift,

This life we shared,

However briefly.

Brainiac

 

Snowy Crest

Human brain can get lost in its own voluminous, excessive size.

When a dog barks and you yell “Stop barking! Quiet!”, dog hears “Yeah! Let’s bark! Let’s bark together!”, and dog barks more.

Don’t let your brain do your thinking for you.

Unfortunately, it is vastly over-qualified, and has difficulty with some of the simplest thought and reason.

The Circle

Thursday Trail

Remember this always:

The Circle must close.

It is true for us all.

It is simply so.

Ambassador

Berry Picking

Perhaps there should be Nobel Prizes for non-humans.

In the park, people walking dogs are met with smiles, greetings, “Hello”s in soft, charming tones.

People meeting people without dogs are silent, averting their gaze, heads down, staring blankly forward.

If we could all go around with a dog at our knee, we’d be greeted with smiles and courtesies always.

Perhaps every member of the United Nations should be required to bring their dog to every meeting of the Council.

I think if everyone on the planet walked about with a dog in tow, we’d have a world of sweet “Well Hello There”s.

Perhaps we could, indeed, achieve world peace.

 

Seek peace,

Leap

The Thinker

The Thinker

If you think it may be

Too Far or

Too High,

Consider jumping anyway.

Suppose you make it?
