"The Hounds of Mind"
Meet my friend Bobby Abel.  Such a “wordsmith” ............a Davinci with language and paper “canvas” ...!!!!

I believe that his exploration of the subject at hand is as   insightful, concise and poignant as that of any of history’s famous secular writers..
  I am grateful to be able to share it with you here. Enjoy...as he “paints” with masterful strokes.... ....the journey of “the Hounds of Mind”
     Hugh Banks
The hounds of mind…begin to trace……
tracks left by youth another place..............
An elusive place …so far yet near…
That distant land.. called yesteryear.

Relentless hounds with one desire…
to campsites cold,...where once was fire..
Into the forest, the woods and dell..
to nooks  with tracks ...too weak to tell.
From valley low to mountain peak…the joys of youth once more to seek
To streams so small …that once looked great…….
to dreams not yet disturbed by fate..
To faithful friends….both good and true,…
their old acquaintance to renew.
To trust unfeigned…without compare…when a word unknown…
was dark despair.
Doers of deeds….who were heroes then…who now emerge as only men..
Though you search forever…...relentless hounds …
Your fleeting quarry cannot be found.
Relentless hounds................ with one desire…
to campsites cold....................where once was fire…
into the forest…the woods and dell…to nooks with tracks..
....................now too weak to tell.
Doers of deeds …who were heroes then….now emerge as only men…
Though you search forever, you relentless hounds….your fleeting quarry cannot be found.
Your fleeting quarry……..cannot be found.

Be at your quest, Relentless Hounds, Sift fine the Gold in the sands of Time; Though you search forever you Hounds of Mind,
     Your fleeting quarry cannot be found!!!
