The Plan


One thousand golden days
Ten thousand sparkling thoughts
Spread out here before us
At least that was the plan

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

    • But then:

      “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men,
      Gang aft agley,
      An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
      For promis’d joy!

      (The best laid schemes of Mice and Men
      oft go awry,
      And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
      For promised joy!)

      – Robert Burns, To a Mouse (Poem, November, 1785)


  2. Resonating with this one, Ben. It’s beautifully sad, and poignant…
