a life

one of many

memories

shapes

people places

time

money

spent

forgotten

approval

creation

redemption

laughter

crying

all into my blender

chopped up

and down

loud or low

slower faster

richer poorer

whir blur

a life of many steps

forward

and back

a noisy mess

tempted

to press

stop

shaken

awakened

by feelings

of no fear

a childs smile

mine

today and sometime ago

gladly

forget the rest

to hold onto

one

lots of white

or toothless

wanting to feel

that again

stirs a heart

pokes my mind

memories

touches

reasons

why

someone in the air force once told me in such situations - the phrase was- just fly the plane .

considering what servicemen deal with-far far braver than i

and a good thing i don't fly planes or drive cars ...

i just keep walking ...
