There is no pleasure
in having nothing to do;
the fun is in having lots to do
and not doing it.
– Mary Wilson Little
Twists & turns: the road of life is rife with wrong ways bad days, hinderance & hurdle, on the way to what? The great abyss is before me…
There’s some magic of music,
the way a tune can move,
your mood altered in an instant;
an express line to the soul of expression
infecting with inspiration,
subliminal and subconscious.
The series entitled AT THE GATES OF GREECE were all written in 1991…
What inspired this poem was twofold: a wander through the woods near Killarney Lake where I discovered the gravestone referenced in the poem and the untimely death of a dear friend.
Delve into that dream. Whatever it is you dream of… it need not fade.
