Reflections of My Life

DE24BC76-34D7-4AD6-AB49-E2963E018C2C

Will I, when faced with life’s review,

be content to watch my passage?

Will I be proud, ashamed

to see my name

on that eternal movie screen?

Life, indeed a stage, and each must

play a role with no script in hand.

Do we follow our cues

for the paths we choose

or boldly improvise?

I hope with constant vigilance

to owe such little recompense

that I may revel in the rest

as I lay aside my script

with its pages worn and ripped

to bask in brilliant Light

in sweet repose.

I shall return the key

until it’s time for me

to succumb to the seduction

of another huge production

that will give me second chances

and with no backward glances,

find new glory in the spotlight-

Center stage.

Love and Light and happy #Free48 to everyone!

 

A Closer Look/Photography

Glimmer.

A childish delight!

Yet take a closer look,

like the magic in a book..

 

3FEC9BA2-36A8-4654-A7B7-6A9F13979EFE

 

sparking the imagination

into throes of bright creation-

spinning!

 

84AC607B-6D59-47CB-8391-EA73EFA9144C

Blinking!

 

Eyes tell mind to loose its grip,

mind abandons thought- I slip

into Wonderland.

 

Merely bubbles….

 

855FC86C-200A-49CE-8B7E-E964D91DB986

 

Whirling globes

of chemistry

dancing in the air….

for me! 

 

84AC607B-6D59-47CB-8391-EA73EFA9144C

 

Captivating!

There inside,

oh let me in!

 

4F24B9E7-3189-4243-958F-02C5C543FAE0

 

Magnificent,

enchanted realm

of yesterthen…

 

Let me dream,

let me send

foolish worry

to the wind…

 

7784BDE2-66C4-4564-8CCE-26E857697F0E

 

Cradled in

your care,

light as air,

to be propelled,

and thus dispelled…..

poof!

 

615F683B-64E9-4FC9-AE60-965CFB53CF3A

 

And with a gentle breath

blown into oblivion..

 

CE6C5415-8CC1-4678-910A-527B894142FD

 

Leaving

but a memory….

Bittersweet.

Occasional Whimsy/#SoCS

6CE92DC3-3C55-476C-BD96-5D956E421750

 

Ocular interpretation

bowing to imagination,

floating off in pastel hue

of sunset pink and ocean blue,

magically against the light,

pure occipital delight!

With each breath, anticipation,

to honor this new occupation! 

Sighing, flying, giggling me

to think such play would set me free

till fun o’clock comes to an end

with deadly kisses on the wind,

my bubble burst, annhialation

havoc wreaked on my creation,

the Octopus’s garden gate is

closed, locked, tic toc-too late

to glide away inside that sphere

whisked away to there from here!

Surely there’s no grander spell,

this earthbound Spirit cannot quell

such adolescent liberations,

my mouth agape in consternation,

staring at the empty space

with soapy film across my face

and gaze into the swirling potion

responsible for this emotion.

I wonder that I made a fuss-

I must go find that Octopus!

What else is one to do on a snowed in unexpected holiday but to blow bubbles and photograph them before they burst?👏🏻
