Life As Definition


Walk boldly into a roiling fog
that causes humans to vanish.
There the bombardment of atoms
causes the mind to grow or wither.
Some walk perpetually. Some return
altered by wisdom. The essential
objective for now is to be still.
Walk into cloud and come home

knowing the absolute meaning

of breathing. No matter the challenges,

no matter that no weight is given

to the task, the voyage has meaning.

Walk between condensations of mist,
then impel clouds to disperse as lessons
are imbibed and the sky slowly speaks
of roaming in the only circle that proves
there is no ending ever.
