A 'ku thought from Patrick's picture.


How do you live life?

Do you lead, facing the blast,

Or glide, the smooth ride?

Gliding has its moments but the blast is where we all push the envelope of life. p

Leading offers the best view but submits one to the greatest potential adversities. Those opportunities where we have to chose between thrashing to excel or floundering to fail. Lead, by all means. History is always kindest to those that have ventured. Regardless of whether they were successful or failed. Eileen, creating a ku worth sharing has been an illusive effort for me. A dear friend with whom I collaborate on poetry creates marvelous ku's. I will leave them in the capable artistic hands of folks such as you and my dear friend. I bid you love and peace.Jon Michael

This Ku asks a great question...my answer I guess would be that I glide but sometimes into blast...keeps life interesting.

I've been facing the wind and I'm a bit chapped. Great thoughts stirred here. Liz

I remember thinking that this was a great photo when I saw it on Patrick’s poem, but your words have given it a new life. I love that he caught them with wings up, wings down and two of them, seemingly coasting. Or were they? Maybe his photo just happened to catch them in that position….. Then again, do you suppose they trade off like bicycle riders do in a race, sharing the labor of leading, then resting? I wonder. Nicely done, young lady. Thanks Dick

I love the last line..."Or take the smooth ride?"

Very smooth 'Ku.
