Re: Do you know where you're going to ?

We have a soul at times.
No one's got it non-stop,
for keeps.

Day after day,
year after year
may pass without it.

Sometimes
it will settle for awhile
only in childhood's fears and raptures
Sometimes only in astonishment
that we are old.

It rarely lends a hand
in uphill tasks,
like moving furniture,
or lifting luggage,
or going miles in shoes that pinch.

It usually steps out
whenever meat needs chopping
or forms have to be filled.

For every thousand conversations
it participates in one,
if even that,
since it prefers silence.

Just when our body goes from ache to pain,
it slips off-duty.

It's picky,
it doesn't like seeing us in crowds.
our hustling for a dubious advantage
and creaky machinations make it sick.

Joy and sorrow
aren't two different feelings for it.
It attends us
only when the two are joined.

We can count on it
when we're sure of nothing
and curious about everything.

Among the material objects
it favors clocks with pendulums
and mirrors, which keep on working
even when no one is looking.

It won't say where it comes from
or when it's taking off again,

though it's clearly expecting such questions.


We need it
but apparently
it needs us
for some reason too.

Re: Do you know where you're going to ?

yes, and these are some of the inevitable stops along the way.
My mother's funeral
My daughter's wedding (a long way off, as she's still a child)
My son's graduation
A broken heart (again)
Back to Kathmandu
My first grandchild's birth
Visit back to California where I grew up (haven't been in over 10 years)
Retirement
Death, and hopefully at a time when I'll be glad to call it a Life

Re: "Do you know where you're going to?"

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without...

Re: "Do you know where you're going to?"

You call that love in French but it's just Frenchette
I've been to France, so let's just dance
I get all the love I need in a luncheonette
In just one glance, so let's just dance
I can't get the kind of love that I want
Or that I need, so let's just dance

Thank God - I thought it was only me....

Although I guess "Do you know whence/whither/ to where......" (actually, I'm not sure how it SHOULD be written! Anyway - wouldn't sound as nice
