Mystery Beckons

How often I’ve reconstructed that wall,
and still it crumbles, the universe
and ever-reaching temptation,
her tentacles tearing at the fabric
of this constraint –

I am losing the battle,
have little left of value
in this black and white world –
conformity does not suit
my disposition –

Unwieldy as I am, I will climb
that ladder, follow the uncoventional,
delve once more into the mystery.

      1. Life is in limbo now. Maybe that’s why I haven’t posted for awhile. Spring is still some steps away. It will all work out in the end. Thanks for asking. 🙂
