Stepping Stones are not Throwing Stones
Someone once told me that any skipping rock on
water will eventually sink.
So I pour into their empty cup a wink or two for a
 destitute soul to think.
While smiling at the waves around me I will ride the crest
to the other side.
Then pour my ashes back into the sea to bring memories
home with the tide.
I sailed to the end with kind words while my critics shifted
like sand on the beach.
For time had to jump overboard as a life preserver for the
sinking moon to reach.
Author's Notes:
No cure for the common cold.
Just all of us getting old.
So don't sell your soul.
Reaching  for the gold.

Dan: good write.  And, yes, "don't sell your soul" -- you are GOING to be needing it when Eternity sets in.

Inspirationally profound! A lifetime captured in such rich metaphors. Brian.
