Simplify (an acrostic poem)

Sitting amid the chaos of his desk

Ian surveyed his life with a simple glance

Many pieces of paper that made up his existence

Played among other scraps from other peoples’ lives

Leaving his desk a chaotic world of its own

Ian questioned how he should approach this task

For there were so many ways this could go badly

Yet a match was such a satisfying answer…

Leap Ahead (a 100 word truth?)

Is time ever lost or gained?  The reality of life is that time is experienced.  It can be wasted, or treasured.  It can be counted one second at a time or embraced as a whole.  Time is a measure of the ever increasing chaos around us.  Nothing incorporates all these thoughts as succinctly as “leaping ahead”.  So as you leap ahead an hour, remember you didn’t really lose an hour, but gained a shifted perspective on life.  Think about that while you try to stay awake in church in the morning because you didn’t get your full beauty sleep tonight.
