Critical: Attracting Options

Beneath the low hum
of a graying sky, the fading
aura dissembles.

We were frankly warned
of this unexplained trend,
what it might mean.

In Tao, there is no
unsolicited urgency, only
the lone, myriad way.

It is quite interesting the way you so surprisingly bring the Tao in at the end. You must have combed your articles carefully to come up with such a cohesive poem that has a sort of buried narrative that only becomes apparent at the end.

Thanks, Greg and Jeff. I've often found when I haven't been writing in awhile, a challenge like this is stimulating. If your voice comes through, your true voice, you know you've hit it and I'm happy with this one. Oddly, I was (and am) attracted to certain words which made this easier than it might seem.
