Haven't written in a while. Just stretching my dendrites... Starting with some lofty and will go from there.

Where were you when the world was made?

A glint in your father's eye?

Where were you when the foundations were laid?

When stars and comets passed by?

Who were you when the mysteries were gods?

What reasons caused you to bow?

Which way do you lean when the tides ebb and flow?

Do you ponder the why and the how?

Why do you breathe and for how long will it last?

Have you left any marks in the stone?

Are you words like whispers of power and wind?

Are they etched in the book by the throne?

The painter will use your colors of choice.

Pigments full of water and blood.

But the image is set, forever in voice.

Just a grain of sand in the flood.

Do you live on the edge of your finger tips?

Do you plan each step in the storm?

Do you swing or sway  in the grasp of their grips?

Do you need them to maintain your form?

Who are you?

Questions are like mirrors. Made perfect in the answers reflected back. If your interested we could explore the answer some time...

Good balanced write. Well done indeed...

Glad to see you posting again, Michael. This is worth pondering about. You've put words to my pondering. We're a mystery yet to be unreveled. I really think we're "Just a grain of sand in the flood."

Michael, So good to see you back i love this one and it also reminded me of what we have been missing. Welcome home poet....
"Just a grain of sand in the flood.

Do you live on the edge of your finger tips?

Do you plan each step in the storm?

Do you swing or sway in the grasp of their grips?

Do you need them to maintain your form?
