Adrift in Now

woodpecker looking

To crave a focus…
…a direction…

For when there is none
They mutter words like
Lost…rudderless…adrift

But, while driving toward the glitter of tomorrow
Can they…
…do they…
…lose the essence….
…the joy…
Of today?

Is there another creature in this world
That has such a drive…
…such an imperative…
To reach for
…to grasp at…
Tomorrow?

…and, does that make us fortunate…
…or handicapped?
