Meaningless Meaning

We deceive ourselves,
To try to hide from our own
Insignificance.

I'm Cleaning Up My Act

<                                        amidst thy shell's core

                                         with .........  wholesome cleansing

My Shield

By Michael J Falotico

                                                         an insult does hurt..
                                                 when a tongue feels like a knife..
                                                    covered ears, my shield..

                                                         words spit like bullets..
                                              some hit there mark, some have not..
                                                           target smaller now..

PERSPECTIVES

         "PERSPECTIVES"

optimistic view
glass is half full of water
thirsty ~ take a drink

            pessimistic view
            water glass is half empty
            thirsts ~ sees no water

the sunny day view
sees light on a cloudy day
sunglasses in hand

            the cloudy day view
            sees clouds on a sunny day
            opens umbrella

encouragement view
beat failure ~ give it a try
yes ~ you can do it

            discouragement view
            do not try ~ it will not work
            embrace the failure

the positive view
a vertical ascension
plus sign on the move

            the negative view
            horizontal stagnation
            minus sign standstill

SALVATION FROM SELF SLAVERY

                                          



                                  




                                           inner consciousness
                                       seeks righteous abnegation

Capers of Life

Kapriolen des Lebens / Capers of Life / Las cabriolas de vida  

Kapriolen des Lebens
Genauso wie fernes Irrlicht
In Vergangenheit


The capers of life
Like a far distant ghost light
In those bygone times

Luz fantasma lejano
En tiempos pasados

It's How You Look At It ...

cellular reality

specks affect our view
       and vision of life is altered -
              events happen in ticks

smallest particles
       unceasingly replicates -
              time is perpetual

in whatever size
       all that matters make impact –
              truth remains unchanged

CHEMISTRY IN BODY AND MIND

                                           body's chemistry
                                     consumption of milk differs 
                                        from vodka and wine

                                           a test tube in lab 
                                      shows results differently
                                            of compositions

                                           unseen chemistry 
                                poured in to all's eyes through sight 
                                         not same to all men

                                        feel without touching
                                          diversity in feeling 
                                       connect with own mind
