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…

Inspired by a contest hosted by Poetess Darkly a year ago---thought this might lighten things up a bit

The Tooth Fairy's Confession

Everyone has a good old time They’re written in songs, they’re written in rhyme, They have their own days or have their own season, And none of those guys get more applause Than that fat old dude named Santa Clause. Jack Frost is praised for nothing more Than leaving his artwork on windows and doors, And the boogeyman gets accolades For scarin’ the hell outta Susie and Dave. I can’t get busy with my petty labors Till the Sandman goes and does me a favor. They’re all guys and all overrated, Overpaid, over loved, like that rabbit I dated, And what do I get for a nighttime of chores But a sack full of teeth and not a thing more. Well, none of ‘em will think it’s so freakin’ funny When they find what I’ve done with that damn Easter Bunny!

    Reminds me of the time my wife Toni, who is Italian, made rabbit cacciatore for Easter and freaked out our daughter-in-law...
