Delightfully drawn to the night, to the day.

Like a flicker of flame.

Curiosity rules my brain, searching.

For what I know not. Oh but that’s part of life’s fun.

Treat or Trick. Trick or treat.

Trying to find a favorite candy.

Problem is: tastes change. So the search rages.

Looking for that flicker, the spark to go on.

Find direction. Such heady things.

Find purpose. Such needy things.

Life is full of this. Tricks. Treats. Flicker. Spark.
