There are a few, a very few, who come
along every so often, who astound
with insight and make the many succumb
to what they sense is a vision profound.
Able to simplify complexity,
disable daunting past paralysis,
enable light joy in nitty gritty
and fable a skillful analysis
of what heretofore was unimagined.
This person inimitable casts a
deft eye on life real and imagined
to sly the dark night into a bright day.
No one doubts the finality of death,
but a few make eternal the mindís breath.
