Consistency

Poem By Ric Edwards

Blind consistency devours our souls.
It penetrates our actions
Never allowing us to branch out,
Experiment nor investigate.
The sameness dominates the route home
And the order of our days.
Fettered taste for the everyday
Forces a limited experience
And a stunted growth.
Whether meat and potatoes
Or tacos and refried beans,
Whether Samba or waltz or square dance or jig,
Whether pancho or macintosh or cape or kimono,
Does not matter one whit.
An unbridled consistency
Knows no boundaries:
For Irish, English, Spanish or Persian,
Consistency is a relentless thief.

Success

Working my way thorough the day-to-day,
I am unabashedly happy to say
To all who happen to come my way
I've accomplished what I set out to do.

Out In The Open

A bright, white light might
Set your deeds aglow
Showing those who know you best
Where your care dare lie
