Shadow whispers

Making notes engages
me into the life swirling around me
for this moment this day
tomorrow discover, note, again
the shadow whispers as it passes

vista widens to panorama
so: as life span ahead shortens
one can compass ever more

No longer needs triumph

Your strategic mind no longer needs to triumph—you seek rather to do the important, significant, needful, right—in this is the understanding of non-attachment to outcomes.
