Friends Adrift

Poem By Marc Krüger

Why in absence of a solemn oath,
With indeed no promise made.
Neither grieve, but both,
The losing of each other's shade.

No telling what tomorrow brings,
A croaking toad, or birds may sing.
A brand new road -
A painful sting.

Where will I go?
I know...
In many circles,
...slow.

Comments about Friends Adrift

I really like the closing stanza...simple yet powerful.....and painfully true for us all.

Inertia

You find yourself in a carriage,
Racing! Racing! Racing!

With each hoof-beat,

Bang

We have a single go-
One shot to pick it right.
To play our cards, or throw-
One miss could lose the fight.

The Food Of Life

At times the rumbling drums,
However loud and clear;
Beguile the gentle strums
That take away our fear.
