- Haiku X 64 - Into Empty Space -



The graceful ballet
My work almost completed
The gloomy gray sky

Explore your shadows
Allow yourself to feel joy
Fear of loneliness

Yes-life has its happy and sad moments, and they usually seem to accompany one another. Almost, but not always.

Dear Anne Lise What a sad poem of loneliness, it makes the reader want to step back and reflect on ones life and troubled moments, to find the inner self and let go to enjoy the worthness of exsistence, thought provoking and inspirational, loved it Anne Lise great job, and also glad you enjoyed my Bloody Mary, Linda is the one whom asked for it, I never heard of it except in passing, so did I nail the old gal or what, lol cheri

Gray skies and loneliness are balanced by lovely accomplishments and a joy of life. Life offers both options and we gradually learn to deal with them as we grow older and wiser. ~ Hope you're having a lovely weekend, Anne Lise:) hugs // paul
