The Word-a-day Writing Challenge

Day Fifty-Four: Synthesis

Churning with existential clatter like,
What am I doing with my life? 
One can find solace in everyday things—

The potato
For example, peeled for stew.
What does it teach about life?

Grow underground, it says.
And fill your eyes with dirt.
Become something 
From nothing 
That anyone can see.

Synthesis does not always occur
In the light. Answers don't always
need to be seen.
