“ Puzzling ” ~ with longevity ~

Not for a life time

But of time alive,

Fate holds be mine

To explore demise,

As nature’s design

Of erudition drive,

For a human assign

In a complex devise,

Be suspect durability

That we want define,

Ceding be its brevity

Ought facilitate mind,

For its one only life

In a scant fix of time,

Has man ever puzzling

Till he realized best not find,

He was born to indeterminate end

With longevity be as fate so inclines!

  1. How beautifully said!!! I took a deep breath when I read the first two lines: “Not for a life time But of time alive…” Your ability to capture the complexity of our finite existence provides hours of reflection. Have a wonderful day – thank you for adding joy to my day.

    • Ah… Rebecca, you do have a way of pulling together the subtleties of a reflection together, thus so to force immediately to the surface the important nuances of a difficult aspect of human life, more or less throughout, looming over us ever more so as we move closer to the other end of our short stay.

      Thank you for constantly being there, and as well your helpful and constructively beautiful comments on my humble scribbles.
