By Lisa A. Crothers, Wells

The contemplative days fade
Nights filled with Restlessness
Slow moving Pictures from a Past not quite lived
Not yet lived.

The pensive eroding of the shore
Life filled with instability
The Lunar Tide
A force beyond.

Allow the Fading to inspirit
To Fortify
To Vitalize
Not yet lived into
