Miscalculation


Life is a range of miscalculation
at every drop a problem teases,
building up a host of speculation.
Alas! We are left to chase a solution.

Relationships hinge on tricky puzzles
to hang on or to cease, robs us of the sleep
look out for surprises and gloom in a dazzle.
They say; as we sow so do we reap.

Dare to share a silent tear for its retention
remember a smile spreads with communication
welcome are all those unexpected additions
humbled by a loving touch, care and attention.

Life is a range of miscalculation
at every drop a problem teases,
building up a host of speculation.
Alas! We are left to chase a solution.

    Life is an expectation of our hope and dreams
    Mingle together with speculations of God
    To cease our additions

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
