Wings of Retirement (poem)

Wings of Retirement

Starting on the path of novelty

Contemplating new means for new ends

The style of unforeseen and unexpected is now

As you question your questions

As you doubt your doubts

You realize you are not who you thought you were

A lonely sense of freedom

An exciting sense of bewilderment

Celebration is worn like a scarf in the wind

Obscuring the past for the future

Amnesia affords a new integrity

Beckons now the artistic and creativity

Flying over green pastures of flourishing hope

You swoop into themes of intent

Collected from the dark corners of the id

Wisdom and character awaken

Imagination soon sprouts wings

Dawn of design begins

Conductor of your symphony

Dance of future score

Ballet of dreams forever more
