Where is the boundary Between reality And possibility?
Dreams of motion Cars and vans, across deserts Sunlight’s glaring strength The forces of life drive hard Each day waking I’m the same bed With different views Outside this glass Wheels sparkle in the day Transitions happen
Do not give in to fear Each step of acquiesce Feeds the beast Growing it Face it down! Demand it sit Then lay down Into the dirt Acknowledging Your power
It’s always time For forward motion To step away from my past Into my future As the present fades Into dust
A fly in my cup Bereft of life and motion Tea in a new cup

At dawn and dusk the sun has been this bold orange/red. Stunningly beautiful, juxtaposed against the monumental destruction weight by those fires.
