Complexity didnít come easy,
it didnít come fast or slow,
Complexity crept in and made its bed,
but how was I to know?
Have always been the simple type,
knowing less was more.
Swept the clutter from my mind,
and focused on the chore.
Thatís how great things get done,
when I was in the fore.
Before the stuff of rightness,
was peeled from my core.
When need outstripped its counterpart,
and greedily called for more.
It all was so easy, these helpful aids to life,
creepingly keeping up with the Jonesís strife.
I want to once again linger at the wane of day,
shed the crutches time has placed in my way.
And breathe the air of relief again,
as stars twinkle on, one by one, in the Milky Way.

|A little bit of wistfulness in here Ron, and who can blame you.
We all get that way sometimes, when our emotions are rather closer to the surface than maybe we would like or want. But hey that is being human after all.
Keep on trucking man, and don't look back

|and in June that's the way to do it. Get somewhere at twilight where you can see those stars come out! You may have to drive out aways where you are. Or maybe the beach at night? It is the simple things that refresh us with genius, in nature or in our creative lives. Yep, my poem too...
Next time, Mike
