The Face of Tomorrow (a poem)

The face of tomorrow is here today

a child with bright eyes + an imagination

working overtime –

The face of tomorrow is here to stay

in a school’s dusty hallways,

dreaming of ways to change the world.

Uncertainty (a poem)

I search for certainty

my mind processes current events like a calculator,

seeking clarity – aren’t we all?

But once things settle down, the lake becomes still

in the moonlight

things change, get strange

Big Foot does a belly-flop in the cold water

scares the children away

The only thing I know for certain

is that life is constant change

impermanence +

I must cope with uncertainty.
