The Pursuit

PeaceIt is so easy to get caught up in all the chasing. There are the goals and dreams and aspirations. We pursue a vision, or our aim, or any other number of respectable things.  To swing, as the poet said, “the earth a trinket at my wrist”.

But after the commanded journey, what?
Nothing magnificent, nothing unknown.

There something softer, more gentle, that marks how we have lived our lives.
