Feast



When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that is in itself a choice.  ~William James



There is a feast of options
on the banquet table of life
we can sip it's warm brew
and all it has to offer
and then sit back and read between the lines
of what may lay before us
giving us the ability
to choose our next move
who will be king
and who holds our happiness
that is in our hands
and on our tongue
...we can decide
to swallow
 or to just spit it out.

  8. Carrie,

    Very nice and so thoughtful. Prayerful in fact, since we must be thankful to have choices in life.

    Best wishes, Carrie.

  11. Hi Carrie, I like your poem and the opening quote, it makes me think of Rush's song Free Will.
