Do you often
try,

to make sense
of everything,

that which
has happened

that which is
happening,

and that which
might happen,

or not
happen at all,

Do you often
think,

of the
what ifs,

of that
which you have,

and of that
which you don’t,

of the dreams
you chase,

and those
that fell by the way,

Do you often
question,

how the past
becomes immaterial,

to the reality
of a today,

or the difference
between

what you have
on paper,

and them
that are for real,

between those
that you can count,

and those
your arms can hold,

Do you often
ponder,

on how life
silently flows,

to a guaranteed
end,

on whether love
is a boat,

or is it just
the oars…

…for i often
do,

and often
i fail,

to make
logical sense,

of this
quzzical breath,

that feeds
me moments,

but also takes
out life,

And ever
so often,

my unseen
soul,

laughs amused
at me,

telling me
to go on,

refusing to
accept,

the simplistic
explanations,

that already
prevail.

  1. This looks like “Foxy Girl,” my inappropriate name for the camp dog at the base where I volunteered in Israel. The other people won in calling the dog’s name by the same name as the base (which I won’t say). Loved that little girl, and it brings up the feelings as such that only love-loss can…
