Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

    You and your theme may tickle a crown of sonnets out of me. If so, oh Heavens, the work the work, lol, I will dedicate it to you, okay? The sonnets will seem so at odd with the poet that is calling to me: PLATH! She, free verser-- I will have to be careful, use the loosest of rhyme, imagery that startles and it must read as confessional, mind to hand without sensor or hesitance. In sonnet form? What the hell am I thinking. Oh, but its there there there, a gnat, buzzing, thanks to you. LOL. Plath had a portable typewriter, was mad for it. I understand. I can barely write on a page, scribble, stop and then cross out each line. But when I TYPE? Oh, its like the keyboard is a prosthetic... xox
