When our thoughts are unsettled
and our inner world is in a muddle,
we may sharpen our wits
and try to recognize the invisible edges
of our fractured stance.
If we seek to figure out,
what our life story is all about,
we may be able to put the missing pieces
in place and identify what is driving us,
what we are actually up to
and why we are running
like mad dogs, sometimes.
(“On a doggy day”)
― Erik Pevernagie
