Carpe Diem

Axe in hand,
the woodsman wends un-caring of recognition
to the horizons of his dreams.
Keeping patience precious.
Knowing all good things take time.
Around him,
slow grows the forest,
un-afraid of failure and un-fettered from conformity’s inevitable expectation.
Each bending bough
the nurtured child watching others lose their way.

Osijek, Croatia 1992
