Submission 2023

Wish I had a degree.
So I could be read seriously. 
But I'm ok with learning everyday līve. 
By observing and practicing. 
As the light of the world burns and turns. 
Through religious verse, constellatory signs, 
withering vines and living minds. 

The past is only what lasts. 
Where lessons were cast. 
Now is only when the divine is 
in the mind to decide right and 
guide our future to within sight. 

The kids are the ones with the wisest minds. 
Til we worry bout being left behind.
