Rod's random thoughts To catch the wind it isn't necessary to erect a windmill.

Forget your enemies and leave them dangling.

Cause and effect is not learned soon enough.


Some nights your sighs
do not tear up the blackness
on other nights they boil it down
                     to nothing.
It comes and goes.
A quarrel over lovers,
a dare not taken up.
Love, a cup half full,
not filling up again.

By what divining light
does heat turn into mildew ?
Where does the blurring start
between providence and progress ?

Ever up ahead
          another river road.
Another blank page to be filled
and one more beating heart,
someone would like to stop,
            that won't be stilled.
And this is but another letter
that I never sent
       and never meant to.
