preferring...




i came upon snow
but would not venture
preferring rain
drops melted cold

to step - to trace
a print of self
is not a path i choose
to tread
i prefer unknowing
to guarded truths
the fall of Noah
his dance with death

to race - to gather
simplest thought, a leaf
drowning in the wind, and
should i lose my step, the way
home to heaven
or candle lit

i shall have peace
within each breath
obscure
forgotten
as life unwritten
