Synthesis

The gift package arrives at birth
and as Life progresses
we draw from it

in various degrees
at various moments
with various effects

Energy and Spirit
Love
and senses of sight
sound
taste and touch
The ability to absorb
perceive
and to wonder


Trial and error
to choose and to order

to speak

The strength of sex
the beauty of intimacy
and sharing

And Time
not a limitless Time
but Time with an Ending

This bundle of Time
in which we each swim
and waste... ignore...
or mold
But always consume

Our parcel of Time
from which we must each take
raw material
Love, Energy, Wonder, Perception

to squander
or shape

To synthesize
finding meaning
drawn from the experience of living

Ideas in a material Universe

Life considering itself

G.J.G 7/6/89
