words are bells
let them ring!

As we advance in years,a presumption occurs
that we are wise because we have survived.This is random
and our tiny lives could be snatched from us like a child's toy
by fates as anonymous as daily headlines.We are still here-
so folk of youth and fear ask HOW and WHY
We laugh,because of a certain rough spiritual equality
that means we all share breath,life,this planet
and will all leave here.Leaving ourselves here.
Consciousness is fleeting.Time is revealing.
For we have sat @elder's knee and asked for wisdom.
It did not come.Just sharing
what it is we all have right now -in common
