TO HOLD LIFE IN YOUR HAND

 

To hold life in your hand,

How does it feel?

A little movement and fluttering

To tickle your fingers.

Antennas searching for sound

And wings seeking flight.

It leaves all too soon,

Spreading its wings in the light.

But you had life in your hand

For one precious moment.

UNUSUAL PICTURE WITH ODD OBJECTS

Still Life with a Parrot Tulip, a Pink Rose, a Mouse, a Lizard and a Bee Jean-Baptiste Fornenburgh – circa 1621-1648

 

An unusual picture with odd objects.

Placed in weird relation to each other.

Why these objects?

Does it have anything to do 

with the spider’s web in the distance?

The web could be waiting

for the bee and the butterfly.

The flowers could have been placed on the table

to lure them closer to the web.

Then what about the mouse and lizard?

Why are they even in the picture?

The mouse could have been hungry and

jumped onto the table for food.

The lizard could have strolled into the scene.

By accident.

But there can be no accident.

The artist placed them together for a reason.

I can’t figure out why.

BUTTERFLY FLY AWAY

phoenix-in-ashes:


BUTTERFLY FLY AWAY

Fly away my butterfly.

Up into the clearing sky.

Away from this park.

Away from the  dark.

         I wish I could fly with you.

        To a sky clear and blue.

         I want to be free from this fight,

         But this noose is holding me tight.

         Farewell to Oasis and my friends.

         This shouldn’t be how the story ends.

         THE DEAD GAME

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

The mind is complex.

It stores information.

It reasons.

But it’s also creative.

I see a butterfly and its shadow.

Did my reasoning or past data

tell me this?

No.

It was the creative part of my brain,

working on over-drive.

What do you see?
