Unknown In Stone

in doubt, in prayer 

as we keep you in our steed
we anguish over destiny, and
bitter that this is so. 

the anarchy of living is 
having no extant guide 
to offer meaning for the 
presumed grand scheme - 

for the aftermath unseen.

and so, as guardians that we 
may be and may be to one another,

trust in the unknown 
is our bond and 
saving grace.

  1. oh my...that photo is wonderful
    so touching....the poem felt akin to this image

  2. Excellent! I do not worry about the grand scheme of things, the aftermath - I live and love today.
