All There Is (+2)

Will there come a time,

not very far off


When all that you have

is what you believe


Will there come a time,

now closer than far


When what you believe

—is all that there is


(Dreamsleep: October, 2019)



Darker Hues


True palettes of nature,

our souls are reframed by difficult things


The hues growing darker

—forever to color the struggle within


(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2019)



Front To Back


To start at the front,

before the beginning


Just to finish arear

—in back of oneself


(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2019)

    Hmmm I think belief is necessary for us to go on something for us to hold too..who knows what the future holds but more to this of what you can see touch feel...there certainly is and to be able to ‘touch’ the unknown ...invisible and to understand is a true blessing...a gift....I believe...🌹

    I may be wrong, but don't verse 2 and 4 essentially mean the same? What is in your mind is there, and what is there is in your mind.
    I love these mind-twisters of yours!

      "Is all that you have—all that there is."

      You decide.

      Thanks Fred
