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…

Please make me rewrite this poem next year

Nothing is New
The date has changed, Calendars and desk pads are rearranged, What else is especially new? Birthdays, weddings, reminder notes? Perhaps hope?  The month has changed, Everything else remains the same, What else is especially new? The season, vacations, new schemes? Perhaps dreams?  Our age has changed, Problems that we overcame, What else is especially new? Our prayers for wars to cease? Perhaps peace?  Nothing has changed, Turmoil and hate remain, Nothing is new...

    I would advise you to behave. Your instigation has not helped promote peace and harmony. Have a slice of humble pie while you are at it.

    Off topic, a boy, only five, has slipped under the nith river here in New Hamburg. His body has not been recovered. Our town is full of blue ribbons, blue ribbons on porches, blue ribbons on trees, on sleeves, on cars... they want closure. What is new? This boy's family has suffered a devastating loss and my community is in pain. I can not stop thinking about him. We are made new each day. He will have no new days... only five... only five... I think I am still sick because I feel this so deeply. I'd rather feel though then be numb, robotic. So, I will try to start anew... remembering that others do not get a chance to change, to grow, even to grow up. I'm so sad.... xoxox Cyndi
