ONCE UPON A LIFETIME

ONCE UPON A LIFETIME I came unaware; a heartbeat comfortable in place forced onto existence on a starry night before the light began. time opened up and reality flew by on a memory tapestry Interwoven signed and sealed as a solitary life from the beginning to the end, all was destined to be remembered by thoughts alone creations of vanity shared in a connected cosmic consciousness we can only guess at. CAK 3-25-2013 SYNOPSIS From birth to death Life is a creation of unknown origin intertwined and interrelated with all earthly things. existing in the end, only in memory

At the end of the poem I thought that you had a certain life in mind. Maybe that idea came from the time of year? But your Synopsis blew that right open, and allowed us all be incorporated in the lives of hope and achievement that I like to read into this poem. In memory or not, we all touch someone in our time, and may our influence be positive.

One day you will meet the designer and he will answer all your questions, even the ones you haven't thought up yet. He does promise "Seek and ye shall find." I enjoy your thought provoking writes.

Richard, faith answers all questions. It is a gift bestowed on a few. I do believe in a creator but as a member of the human persuasion, we exist outside of any remote understanding. Thank for your comments.
