Poetry – Life Intervenes

Life Intervenes


                Like the flap of a butterflies wing


                Flowing down a hillside to the sea


                Inconclusively gazing into the mist


                A series of shots in the dark

The future

                An unknown country

                                Arrived at

Through decisions made,

                Consequences considered,

                                Foresight deployed

With life intervening.

Opher – 6.4.2021

No matter how hard we try to control our lives we are subject to the vagaries that life throws at us. The future can never be known – only guessed at.

The forces at play are beyond our control. We merely guide our raft through the rapids.

The purpose and reasons for the life we choose to live are the guiding force we apply to our paddles.

Ultimately we all reach the sea.

I'd like to hear from you...
