100 Words / Thriftless
To stand at the crux of life and then step into the unknown,
to dare adventure to sweep you away
towards that nebulous idea of destiny.
To do more than dabble,
closing the door of safe haven behind you and to venture reckless,
flinging yourself into the arms of fate
taking leaps of faith like pebbles skipped
across the becalmed pond
sinking yet to rise again
with tears, or shouts of joy
in search of desire
or to float in dreams
until the bell of some distant supper calls you home.
