Weighs heavily on me like unwilling sleep."

Metamorphosis

   January 8, 1988

 
A Day that is
     will be
What had been
 
 A Dream that is
     will be
Or could have been
 
Thoughts poured out
     Harden like concrete
Then decay -- crumble
     To dust under feet
 
Changing, forming
     Decaying, dying
Invisible to visible
    Thoughts reviving
 
Dust we were
     Dust we'll become
     But it is the dust
Where life had begun
 

   ------------------------------------------------

 

 Thought:

"... for dust thou art,
      and unto dust shalt thou return.
"
              Genesis 3:19  (KJV)
