a wisp of smoke
one moment rising
then gone -
so too this fleeting life
passing before our eyes

Our ephemeral lives and the smoke interweave beautifully in this poem, Paul...

The bible tells us that life is a vapor, but that truth becomes more real with each passing year, doesn't it? So perfectly stated, Paul. Makes me want to make the most out of today...

very indianesque : merges with my philosophy
a wisp of smoke
one moment rising
then gone -
