Monday WRites 221


Everything breathes, lives; moving or rock still. Passing years reflected in moon curves, know of existence. Of destiny, that's another issue. Some of us are more gifted than others. Who knows which mountain, will crumble, which sea will be parted down its middle affording passage to a designated few?

What is there in knowing anyway. Each day dawns with some promise of its waning to dark inky skies. Maybe in our struggles to understanding and wisdom, the gratitude for life, that is enough.

  7. We live on a sea that was cut off from the ocean after the ice age. It is now a fresh water lake, but the ancient seawater is trapped in it's 1000 foot depths. - Margy
