"Return, we beseech thee, O God of Hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;" Psalm 80:14

Peripheral Visions --

Spirits That Steal Away Concentration


"Dead reckoning ahead!" and "Focus of mind!"

---When suddenly Visions Peripheral catch unaware

And beckon with dreams and memories in time

To spend a moment with them there.


"Onward and Frontward!" reminds the Self

---When but a familiar scent catches away

And suddenly One as all but deaf

Is lost in reverie of a bygone day.


"Press on, do tell!" and "Stay the courses!"

---Then  doomed by a mere nudge from the pet

To reminders of hearth and past remorses

And regrets that linger yet.


"Steadfast!"--"One must!"-- "Lean to!" and "Surge on!"

"Single file!," "Take care!"…"Fall not to sides!"

---Whereupon wafts Melody Sweet to capture the heart

And away on the wind the heart rides.
