More poetry ... hey, maybe this might be working ... at least this month I've had more stuff coming out ... and the past few have at least drifted away from the bad cycle.

                    ONCE MORE UPON THE HILL

                    currents of change
                    in sinuous descent
                    disturbing the norm
                    challenging the freeze
                    seeking to open
                    floodgates blocked
                    by ancient war
                    to right the overflow

                    so many things we lack
                    to take this action
                    so many tools gone missing
                    or were never here supplied
                    but we face the task willing
                    with faith in will
                    that it shall suffice
                    to fill the gaps

                    perhaps a larger cycle
                    is operating here
                    the daring of the past
                    to tear down idols
                    to pattern and use
                    has seeded this change
                    and by stepping aside
                    we have forward strode

                    so many facets
                    are glimpsed in gleaming
                    at every hand
                    in every day
                    as though the arcane plane
                    put signs before our way
                    awaiting awaking
                    for open eyes to see

                    we must find steel
                    within the soul
                    we must ingather
                    the shards of knowing
                    broken through these years
                    and fuse these all
                    with a believing
                    brighter than mere light
