TEMPORARY SANITY
(2/12/17)

when
the majority
of our efforts

the majority
of our time

is devoted
to playing our
roles
upon this stage
called
Society

remembering
the miracle
of our existence
is difficult

sometimes
the unexpected
is the only thing
to snap
our attention
from this living
fantasy

a death

a rescue

a car wreck

a full moon
emerging
from behind
the clouds

an eagle
launching to flight
from a leafless
tree

jolt
our consciousnesses
enough at times
to where our
supposed reality
fades a bit

when
we may sense
a more essential
nature

about us

within us

and realize
that most
of man's mechanizations
are paltry substitutes
for living

that another
sunrise
is worth
more
than all
of them
