Natural Selection

i reach for conclusions

filtering intrusions

of thoughts

that manifest in seclusion

while mist persists

in the permeation

of this life’s twists

honing my soul

to hold its own

alone

~

which truth of my seeing

has been lost from rhyme?

devalued in kind

used to mark a lesser coast

lacking time

to host the truly finer thing

so i steel my heart and come

to a flourish of inner Being
