The garbled marble groans garrulous,
As the maw of mottled igneous –
Babbles through tumbling brambles,
Coughing and crackling billow by billow.
Waxing a lonesome lyric…
Amid a palette lit by crescent Indian indigo.

A chorus of snow-stained sopranos -
Punctuated in sonorous timbre…
The nocturnal Minervans keep a solstice vigil,
Seething to and fro a smaller crescendo....
Sweeping the sinewed symphony -
Strands of frosted sand…
Scattered anon across a more diamond desert.

And as flock of a frozen fleet,
So too do the nomadic narwhal of the plains –
Birth to breathe from the ice-driven drifts.
Plumes of choir steam against the fog strain -
Howling through the fog-lit luminescence,
As if in canid kindred refrain.

Ephemeral equine appear,
Enigmatic as eloquent –
Overseers and travelers of this other mere…
Navigating the Nautilus herd,
Through tidal troughs,
Shifting, sifting crest –
Chariot coursers of crystalline Colosseums.

But even the implacable grey,
The weather worn & forelorn Father -
Cannot deny the twinkling inkling,
Which burgeons along the swells,
In sweeter smells.
Visions of verdant oases -
Echoes of Eve -
Far off laughter....
Emerald dreams and Elmo's burning pallor.

Yet in the ghast,
Of the interminable geist –
The somnambulistic sonata,
Stirs anew.
Deposing the denizens –
A chilling chancellor's repartee,
What will be the lesson ?

Long after the solstice –
And the oceans of opalescence,
Have streamed away…
A callous Aeolus will return –
To conduct the question…
Again and again across the tundra expansion;
Whither enviable Green,
Or sanguine Auburn –
For naught, is it…
Therein the answer whispers –
As from empty conch ocarina,
What will be the lesson…

Honestly, I don't know that anything I could put here would be as accurate or descriptive as necessary. In truth, I have been fortunate to become an eclectic blend of what my parents built and that which I made out to become - like most of us. Besides though, how do you tell the story of your life and not leave something out ?

In a brief glimpse, I know that in time I want to run for office - doing what I can in the only thing I have ever been good at. Perhaps I may even be given the opportunity to help people by showing a better way of fulfillment through civic involvement.

I want my wife to know how much I love her despite the knowledge that I probably will never be able to do so. I want to have children in an attempt at giving the gift which has brought me joy - and hope that I can do half the job my own did for me.

I'd like to buy some land - build our own castle, retire out from public life - to think and to write again if I could ever get over this damn block.

I would like to give my wife a smooth sportscar - so that in the comfort of cool autumn evenings, I can steal those keys to remember 17 and maybe enjoy the engineer I was not to become. Not to stay out too late - just a little while.

I seek the most perspective I can and there's a litany of adjectives that probably do a better job than anything I write; human, husband, son, brother, soldier, stoic/romantic, friend - did I mention human ?
