Roll the dice and take chances
with no backward glances; all eyes
focused on whatever prize life offers.
Never sure if we concur, but it remains
out of our hand as it stands. No one knows,
but sometimes that is how it goes.
So faith in yourself and your abilities,
places your fate on the right course.
That is of course, if you put it out there.
Cast your fate; the chance you take.

Inspired by POETIC ASIDES Day 26 – “A “Cast(ing) Poem”


Wafting winds stretching and winding
through outstretched branches; reaching
their fingers for suns warming rays.
On days such as these, the trees are king,
majestic and benevolent, sent to rule
over green fields and glens, knowing
seeing the forest is seeing the trees.
All of nature lowers to their knees,
a gentle genuflect to the aged wisdom growing,
never falling far from their root.
