Legacy Of Santayana

Oft repeated aphorism a reality not a cliche...

Bookshelf lined with leafs of tomes
recounting history, an interpretation.
Geography of the past.

Guideposts of what occurred
foretelling future, prediction of destiny.
Roadmaps for the present.

When read with eyes wide open and aware,
mindful there are no new stories, simply
directional variations on ancient themes.
Blueprints for the here and now.
