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



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
