My bucket list has sprung a leak,
though I’ve not reached all I seek.
Now quite a lazy geek,
find projects to merely tweak.

If I had lingered at my peak,
Life would seem so far less bleak.
My rack of bones that badly creak,
once pool-of-energy a tiny creek.

  1. Maybe your bucket was carrying more than it could hold, so some slipped out. On the other hand, you might not have accomplished all the things you have if you had chosen to keep the bucket light. Still love your thoughts Gus!!


  2. Get on the track at Hayward Field!
