Who Are You Today

An Acrostic Alexandrine

Who are you today among the tall dying trees

Heaving their lives along a pathway to the sky

Ordained to live your life lacking most of the keys

Anchoring in the air for a piece of the pie

Remembering the first years of wonder and awe

Entering the world with innocence and gusto

Yesterday the blue flowers were part of the draw

Ordering a few feelings to turn them aglow

Under the clouds and then within them you were flown

Towards a future full of holes between the lines

Overtly it rarely transpired from stone to stone

Derelict inside without a clue with the signs

Athena where are you now that you are needed

Yearning for Goddess at least one of us pleaded


Those were the days when we did not know who we were, looking for a pivot, often within the life of someone else. At least we know who we are at the end.
