Facing the present is facing the future:
identity is dimensioned in process.
Most things stand still, contextually caught up
in the act of what will be, towards which
anything that moves is directed: the end
appears to be both spontaneous in outcome
and a matter of choice, what is decided
and what’s to be decided; the latter
defines the act of a person, at least
in the world realised to one’s perception,
the double of what’s decided, though
in that not immediately distinguished;
for forward planning explains all achievement
in concrete terms of the decided; that
in the movement, one with earth, sun and stars,
fulfils a common destiny as decided.
