Just passing thru

Wish I had seen it coming. Whining now in hind sight as if I didn’t have a clue. All along I knew. It sneaks and creeps. We party, sleep, pretending not to see. Choosing not to know. Ever closer every year. We’ve see the fields grow. Stones and plaques row after row. Showing full bloom on holidays or waves of ole Glory in the breeze. Just passing through, well lucky you. Take care Pilgrim and pass on, pass on. Manicured turf broken here and there with neat piles of fresh earth awaiting another newbirth of sorts. Restful Garden. Peaceful Acres. Planting pilgrims. Growing bronze and stone.

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?

    ^popped into my head whilst reading your retrospective thoughts  on:
    "Just passing thru"….only at the time, i forgot how exactly that
    proverb was phrased in English— hence penned it in kanji. i apologize
    for having confused you. Thank you for asking me to clarify. Anyways,
    now you know. May i then ask if my comprehension…interpretation is,what you were voicing ?
