36

Milestones along the path
some noticed
most passed by in the fog
to be pined for later.
Fading snapshots
of a not unusual life
on the bottom shelf
to collect dust.
Together still
beyond the game's halftime --
perseverant or stubborn --
holding on to the good
and letting the rest go.
The answer to Tevye's question
is "yes" on all counts.
The future is yet ours
to discover.
