AND SO IT BEGINS

And so it begins The game of life The dominos of love Falling where they may The timer activated Fresh out of a box Learning the rules As we go along No plan or ruse No rhyme or reason Just out for some fun Moving game pieces Taking turns At winning and losing Rising and falling In endless succession An ebb and flow of emotions The tears the laughter Riding a roller coaster Of highs and lows A detonated cosmic launch Mingling interstellar orbs Crisscrossing arcs of destiny In a waltz of muses Or divine intervention AP: Honorable Mention 2020 Read on air by invitation ~ September 8, 2021 'WORDS & MUSIC' Submitted on January 2, 2019 for contest FREE VERSE STYLE ONLY sponsored by EMILE PINET - RANKED 5TH

I had to "fav" this one; I love the imagery painted with words and the way the whole poem unfolds into, "a waltz of muses".
