bent fin

with forward thrust
ripple swells to wave
recall painted gold —
your sodden beeline
swayed by bent fin

This story, heard on NPR, left me pondering just what drives the decision-making process for folks who swear “never again” –and then head straight back to “it” . . . we’ve all experienced it. It’s a common element in our shared humanity.  Whether our “it” is just one more apple fritter, five miles over the speed limit one too many times, one more glass of wine, it doesn’t matter. I have no answers. Just imagery of what it looks like in action. Perhaps what’s needed now is to develop more common imagery and words describing what now guides the new direction, shapes the path, defines the plumbline.
