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 double check your poem before I lock the contest and edit them to conform to the rules of the form and the other couple rules I asked for. You can access those rules by going to the member area and your contest entries. I would hate to eliminate a poem because of rules not being followed.-----Thanks---help your friends

    I'm not sure who all entered the contest, but I could help out if someone is still unsure of their poem. Check over mine, if you would be so kind, fellow poets and poetesses.

    Debs, You deserve being watched over---after all, you watch over everyone else!!

    Loved your further comments about Craig Cornish. I've spent hours thinking about these ideas and suppose that the reason for time is change, but for us alone. In the realm where all knowledge resides, there is nothing to separate the moments. Sonnets past, present and future are already written, waiting only for us to inquire.
