Day 26- Roll the Dice

When hoping for
a lucky roll of the dice,
get things ready.

Consider possibilities
both close and far away.
Connect sea to sky.

Feel the pull
of the swirling wind, far
from anything that could be.

Collide with awkwardness
two and a half feet wide
and six feet high.

Soft pedal what happened,
mentally outlining repairs.
Label intensity.

Plan on falling in love.
Hold back
the ravages of time.

In the aftermath of purpose,
become a whisper.
