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…

    Hi Nette, The term sleepwalk has to be incorporated somehow otherwise, take it where you may.

    I'm like you, Craig. No time any more to even see blogs the way I used to. But I hope to check out that music sometime. It's just instrumentaL? Maybe I will recognize it when I hear it!

    I am not quite certain what the contest involves. Is it a poem set to a musical score, Sleepwalk? I am not familiar with this music and neither am I familiar with the artists mentioned. Will have to do some internet/YouTube trawling.... I think that most poets have an "ear", otherwise how do they get the rhythm of their poems right.... Have a great Wednesday, Craig. Su

    Ouch! My teeth are still aching listening to it. May I suggest Sleepwalk by The Shadows as a better alternative, as the other artists do not inspire me to poetry at all....

    Sleep Walk by Santo & Johnny dates 1959. No wonder I don't remember it. Thank you for broadening my knowledge, Graig :-)
