            Hero’s game ….
I want to know, how should I play?
What are the rules, day after day?
I want to know, where is it gone?
What was it there, that’s gone like dawn?
I want to know, how can I speak?
When it’s not there, what is to seek?
How do I praise, if I can’t see?
Falls out of sight, how could it be?
How did I play? I lost the game!
I played my part, who is to blame?
Searching for it morning and night,
Insist to win, hoping for light.
How do I know maybe I’m sleep?
Dreaming so deep, deeper than deep.
How do I know when I am done?
He will be there brighter than sun.
Hoping to be, gentle and kind,
Love is the one I want to find.
Love is the one for me to win,
But lost so fast, let me give in.
I am so lost not knowing why,
What is to see with blinded eye?
What is this thing that shines so bright?
Guiding my life through shades of night.
Maybe there is heavenly spark.
Even for me, searching in dark. 
If all secrets unveil themselves,
Then no fear we give ourselves.
Don’t ask me now, what will be there,
When I am done, then ask me where.
Until that day, silence I choose.
No matter what, this game, we lose.
My heart and soul they ache to find,
Even a glimpse, I do not mind.

Pashang: I don't do anything but just try to rhyme some silly words. I admire you folks that actually must plan your placement, etc. Maybe you are helped by your artistic ability to paint as well. Whatever the combination: Thanks for sharing with all of us on the soup. oldbuck

It is never that easy to understand what life offers us, Pashang. We question, but answers are not always available. I especially like your ending. Regards // paul

Gosh, I never heard of this poetry form before. it looks to be composed of many couplets, but I wonder if there is a certain other rule involved. Nicely done. I really loved the finishing line. For even a glimpse!! That would be lovely.

A wonderful thing to keep in mind about metamorphosis:)

Thanks Jo, the answer is yes.... I do believe in metamorphosis. The larvae dies in a cocoon and reborn as a butterfly. All of my paintings are self portrait, my paintings are all about me.

A great write Haloo. Enjoyed it and the questions you posed. I guess the answer is that 'it's not the winning or the losing but how the game is played'. Your 'Anomaly' painting is not only excellent but lives up to it name and what you are portraying. Your poem is as well written as your painting is well painted...Maria

Maria, you are so kind to me.... life is an "Anomaly" and it's a game, in this game, we all lose, no winning hand, we just hope to have an opportunity to play one more hand .... and to lose again... SO ... Cheers..
