What is linear. . .

Rothko 1903-1970

We are all connected
yet we fight and batter and maim

We are all infected
yet we hope and cling and pray

Yes, this human thing, a condition like no other
here we reap joy and pain

A repeated cycle of madness
sips of contentment, confinement—a pattering refrain.

  1. ’round and ’round we go
    in the yin and yang of life
    repeated cycles
    let’s look into the mirror
    then come down the rabbit’s hole

    inspiring write my dear …

Words, love them! Have some? Leave them.
