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…

    AWWWWWWW...Yes, I remember those series....What romance! There is the beauty and beast in each one of us! I clicked on another video in which he receives the award for best actor in a tv series. What a lovely down to earth guy! Craig...You are made of mush! That's why my poetry does well with you....I'm MUSH personified! :) Hugs

    This timeless story has such a wonderful moral to it, that we could use in our everyday life...that beauty comes from within. This brings back memories of that series, and how his breathless portrayal pulled it off so well. Thanks for sharing!

    Goosebumps, I was talking about Ron Perlman, to my son minutes ago. He's one of my favorite actors. His voice, outstanding. Watching Hell Boy, with my boys right now. I love the Beauty and the Beast Tv, series. Headed over to YouTube, wouldn't mind hearing him read all over again. Compare his action voice and reading voice. WOW~SKAT

    Thanks Skat, the Beauty and the Beast series was one of the best ever--quite a leap from that to Hell Boy LOL--but he's such a versatile actor

    Ron Perlman is an outstanding actor--many years ago released audio of special readings from the tv series that included many poems metered and otherwise, his reading of them is exceptional.
