Hits and Misses

Things change
And then not

Comfort in routine
And then not

This today usual
And then not

Plans not made
Actually panned out

Plans made
Fizzled out

Shifting sands
Life in flux

I stand stationary
Time ticks

Events impact
Inner intact

Readied to detach
Self from life’s vine

Guard still up
Gauntlet stays thrown

Foil, épée, and saber
Fencing stance always
