Ice and Gold

The Golden Age of life is NOW

Longing for or dwelling on yesterday
Is like watching life through glasses,
scratched like the surface of an ice hockey rink
just before the break.

To just live for tomorrow
is like constantly reaching for

which turns out to be crystals of ice,
melts in your hand
and pours away.


You’ll find your own gold vein,
if you manage to live NOW,

but still keep your wisdom
from yesterday and

knowing where you want to be

despite small wounds and pain in the feet.


The biggest hurdle is to realise
How easy life is,
as soon as you get it
that you’re the one
who draws both your map
and your reality!
