I see contrasting images of life here, Robert. The first line is acknowledging its harsh reality; the next line reflects peaceful serenity; the third declares 'live for the moment' and 'make the best of it'! Regards, my friend. // paul

Spot on analysis my very insightful friend . To me that reflects much wisdom about life on your part. Recently I have written about two dozen Haiku's and have begun to like the poetry form more with each one I have written.

Thank you my friend. I was in a early morn thought about life, Nature and Fate. Hemingway, one of my favorite authors, came to mind and out came this poem.

Thank you my friend. Rat eaten shoes are just another part of the never ending destruction of things. Fate and Time decides what lasts and for how long..
