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 Craig, yes our boys are 6'4' and 6'3 and through each stage of their lives they never turn and let you say goodbye to the previous stage from baby to toddler from toddler to boy, boy to teenager and up to man there is no goodbye in between they just seem to change overnight... hang on to the cuddles while you can..but I still do get them thank goodness..

    When young parents reach the point of frustration, this poem is such a reminder to cherish the moments while we can. Lovely thoughts today!

    Love this Craig, speaks to me in EVERY way. Happy St Paddy's to you, thanks for sharing this :D I'll soon be off to clean Verity's preshool--we do this as a family and it reduces our tuition... we only do it every 8 weeks, but it takes about 5 hours, so oye, so much for fun and frolic today, though my girl loves it since she gets to play with the school toys while my hubby and I scrub tables and mop floors... I like that she sees we are helping to care for her school and are involved... hope you and yours are well. Hugs Cyndi
