More Epitomes of Addie Williams and her short statements she felt. Decided to put more in this category as the last ones she did received so many reads. I hope you still enjoy them. Not really a short story, but was not sure where else to place them.

Epitomes April 1983

Clean is slick
Or soft
Or squeaky.
No matter its texture
Its smell is itself.


Of life
From its beginning,
Consigned to forever
The ubiquitous soul
Knows it all.


Every moment
Is of the essence.
If not in the present
Then in the memory
And thus
In the gut.


The hand I hold
That holds mine too
Isn't there to see
But it is warm.


Life is not
For dreaming
In the pale
Warm sun,
It is doing
While the clock ticks -
Time's run.


Now I'm taking
Two steps forward
And only one step back.
That's a great improvement!
Much better
Than three steps back
Per Day.


Dreaming is
For sleepers
Doing is
For reapers.


The problem is
That I talk to myself,
But I don't listen.


Become productive
Do not ask
"The reason why,"
Just "do,
Or die!"


I had rather be
My own preacher
Than relegate
And exhortation
To someone else.


Provide a time
For keeping in touch.
It means so much.


My day is not yet done.
In fact,
 I've just begun
To live it
And it is dusk.


I found the A's
In the trees
Outside my window.
Big and small
And many,
They were
My wistful anxiety.


Addie Williams
April 1983
