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…

    There will be no lightning, whatsoever. (metaphorically speaking). By the way, the word charioteers became cavaliers. So long. G.

    My 'first' composition is already posted. ------ By the way, Roy: Are the modern sonnets composed solely for the epitaph of poetry? lol

    LOL :) My favorite trees, the most beautiful in my sight, are the ones whose leafs bear beautiful color without even trying, they get out of their own way and allow nature to have her say. Just saying.... :)

    I will write to the subject of your composition gladly sir. I stand proudly with the rest of the forest, those who stand above are eventually going to be hit with lightning. Just a metaphor!

    You should go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours.

    Hey Ruben! I love ya! :) Ya know what annoys me most about this guy, it's that he does not allow his own blogs to become congested with arguing and fighting, by blocking poets (me, LOL) Ha! yet, he comes to other people's blogs and starts fights. He annoys the crap out of me! Stop it, Giorgio! Stop it!
