Till kingdom come

Till kingdom come

If or when or perhaps
           we have every right
to savour our uncertainties
           for there is no ultimate code
to define our being
           there is no definitive shape
to our lives
           we live in the making
of the moment
           in the seizing of the day
in the giving of all
           the love we have within us
and so we try and fail
           and try again
to find our step
           to find our way
to become the fullness
           of our own being

Oak and daffodil

           orchid and elm
have no such freedom
           to recast themselves
in a different mould
           each of us a species
unto our own
           living and loving
in trial and error
           so that the fittest
of our selves survives
           till kingdom come
