Well...I don't know how to mess with this baffles me so I put the collab info in the title. Heh.

My fingers played over the keys of yesterday

trying to recall what made me most happy

but somehow they couldn't conjure up any

of what I thought they would, only a penny

for my thoughts of what the future held

and I hadn't a clue of how a day would meld

into another let alone what a new year may

bring to pass, so how can I venture to say

even one word about my hopes and dreams

as they could be construe d as mere schemes

instead of the goals to which my heart aspires

or any of the mystic moments that set me afire

lo and behold I'm in a set mold I can't get out

I write one poem after another, what about

only the reader knows, since I just write them

and sometimes wonder if I truly comprehend

that in order to hold on to a semblance of sanity

I must understand reality without any vanity

But reality is such an elusive state

And I lack the skills to navigate

The many currents, its ebb and flow

The winds of change they always blow

Against my life, beyond my kin

So many charts to comprehend

My only tool a string of letters

Forming words when tied together

A tangled knot of comprehension

To plot my coarse through this dimension

Of what we see or hear or feel

Just searching for an even keel

Between what has gone and what’s to be

Or how it may apply to me.

Have a real sense of fingers running lightly over piano keys with this write, sometimes intensely, too. Beautiful thoughts expressed here - especially like: "My only tool a string of letters Forming words when tied together A tangled knot of comprehension"... Harmonic collab - thank you, you two!

I must say George , having just read this nonchalantly, it's a little eerie the way we finished each others thoughts in this one.;-)Thanks for sharing;-)

Love Eileen

You two did a wonderful job with this one...
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 1/22/2005
Life is an ongoing mystery and our dreams seem to transform as we move along through the years. Needs change to merely wants and things that once seemed of little importance become our current focus. It is alot like reading a novel, given only one chapter at a time and having to draw our conclusions from each. Very nice collaboration...I struggle with the editor feature too, George, you are not alone.
Take care,
Reviewed by Tinka Boukes 1/22/2005
Great collaboration George & Eileen!!

Love Tinka
