It has been many, many years since I last wrote non-technical prose. But somehow today, I was inspired to write. I have included a photo from my SFU office window’s view at 9:30am this morning. I hope you enjoy reading it.
Atop, up high, the mountain of higher learning,
I gaze out the window at the view usually far and wide,
Hope, a faint glimpse, I hope to see what is the future,
The fog and rain clouds my sight, seeing only here and now.
The spring of youth wells at home,
While I am left with a quiet calm,
Yet I sense the excitement of a new beginning,
Now a chapter closed, but not the book.
Soon the rain will stop, the fog will lift,
Bringing the sun for a brighter day,
Yet waiting for it may bring opportunity lost,
A sunny mind can break any foggy, rainy day.
