a brave front in a busy world

"You okay?", asks the passionate man who cloaks his hope in darkness and denies his verse poetic.

In spite of
a brave front in a busy world.
Incredible. Improbable to unaware observers.
Observers not the word, need other word for those looking not seeing.

Amazing grace
seemingly unpredicted and unsought.
Fire-born. Improbable to unaware observers.
In rawness tempered by years lived, love realized with sudden certainty.

Sweet sadness
flowing through near guilt-free contentment.
Inexplicable. Improbable to the participants.
Longing transmuted to burning passion and anticipation.
