2015, February 20 – 253 – conversation

trading ideas
and bartering stories
a long lunch
to share
a part of our minds
and a glimpse of our lives
laughter and loud voices
debate and accordance
until the topics
fade to rain,
the glasses are empty,
and the bill must be paid.

2015, February 20 – 251 – progress 2

progress comes slowly
in small steps
day by day
crawling towards
a distant
unseen mark
feeling unproductive and stalled
until one day
you suddenly jump ahead!
or so it seems
success in a day
built upon a steady climb
and persistence
how can you enjoy the journey
when the scenery barely moves?
