LABYRINTH OF YEARS
His line reeled out, hooked to birth
thread, stringing labyrinth of years
as age pulls the past in, draws all
together, as the end approaches
porch before veil, progress portal
time warp that we all going enter
double mirror, sends us, reflected
beyond darkness into eternal light
purpose of our journey, destiny
of our flight, unlearning to learn
burdened or blessed with attitude
of all gone by, integral eye seeing
watching over, patiently loving us.
