POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: CONFUSION

THE PAST AND PRESENT

 

I recall the little boy

Full of hope

And no one

To give him

Guidance.

Thoughts beyond

His young mind

Could not understand.

 

He became a man

And as in his youth

There are no answers.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

THE SECRET MESSAGE

 

I know I promised to return to the art of writing, but thoughts and life interfere.

 

Life

We settle

For the superficial,

That is what we are taught,

What we are trained to accept,

But those

Who think beyond,

Pondering their existence,

Pondering questions

Their life does not fulfill

Risk madness,

Or perhaps,

True happiness.

POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS

EXISTENCE

 

Look to the sky

To see we are small,

In the vastness of space

What is our importance?

RANDOM IMAGES: THE COMING STORM

I’m presenting a new category, mainly because it doesn’t fit with anything thus far presented in this blog.  If you enjoy it, let me know.  If you hate it, let me know, my skin is thick.

Day draws down as the beach empties, time to relax for the evening.  Once at your beach rental, you sit on the sheltered porch and recall the release of tension the day has provided.  Beer, cocktails and sodas are offered to those tanned and burned friends sharing this vacation day.

With the evening meal done, you all return to the porch and appreciate the view.  Costal grass along with elegant birds provide a picture-perfect image.

Looking to the south and west you note dark clouds closing in.  Flashes build within their ominous presence and dull thunder signals an approaching storm.

The turbulence of life is echoed to you as the storm draws near.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: THE CREATORS

Have you ever wondered

Of the giants,

The geniuses of the arts, the sciences?

How they suffered

Their daily lives?

The revelations and emotions,

The creations born

Yet the mundane thoughts

Crowding their existence,

Long gone

We put them on pedestals,

Gaze at their work in museums

Or read their efforts,

But remember,

Know they were human,

Lived day to day,

Dealt with life,

Some, their talent realized

Only once gone,

The gamble

Of being

Creative.

I try to appreciate every creative effort I read on the blogs I follow.  To create something from nothing takes effort, whether grand or small.

OBSERVATIONS AND OPINIONS

THE INFINITY OF LIFE

To enter the structure of an organ is to enter a world of vasculature and cell types striving to fulfill a function to keep their host alive.

But to enter on of its cells is to enter the journey of the infinite, the soup of life ever at work. Processes occurring at lightning speed not all fully understood.
The end result can be life-giving or fatal.
Such is work of the cell.
Such is the thin thread of our life.
