The power to stand
a penchant to fall
there's nothing more bland
than one with no gall

desire to spare
ambition unseen
a failure to care
and dreams lose their sheen

an ounce of regret
can feel like a ton
unless you forget
the burden and run.

I truly admire your poetic commitment, which is tremendous. You have an almost daily presence, which I see, but cannot match!!!

Happy Christmas to you Bob and many happy writing days ahead:)

Easily said but the mind conspires to make you remember and replay and replay and replay….like Christmas TV.

Hope it is a happy time for you.
