Somthing Pretty This Way Comes/#1Liner Wednesday

Determined to touch every bloom
To savor every sweet thing possible
She ignored me for her quest

Her fading, tattered wings speak of a life soon to pass. It’s curious the way that all living things seem to have an accelerated appreciation and hunger for the sweetness of life when the road to eternity looms ahead. We seek to absorb what we can, let go of regret and to leave an imprint that we were here.

I think she has left a beautiful one, don’t you?



For Freedom/#haiku



Neither slave nor beast

yet bound and silenced were we

blind brutality


Eternity weeps

for separation within

the heart of their thought


We must make amends

and face the Light clasping hands

all souls free at last
