Art and the philosophy of life

Archive for April, 2013

the way of things

we are like leaves

pushed by the

wind

first one way

then the other

flying high 

today

 on the ground

tomorrow

never knowing

where life

will take us

but sensing

that neither the wind

nor life

has any intent

they are

guilty 

of no

crimes

My Body

my body

once so lean

beautiful

strong and capable

moved without thinking

danced until dawn

did whatever I asked

no

demanded

without hesitation

or question

that body

has see more of life now

thinks a few seconds longer

before moving

dances with a bit more restraint

and doesn’t follow orders

or demands

as well as she once did

it seems as if our roles

are reversing

and now 

I am expected

to listen 

to what my body is saying

no

demanding

she thinks that fair is fair

after all

she did everything I asked

but I don’t see it that way

I’m not ready 

to give up control

so she better get ready

for a very

bumpy

ride

Rose for a Tuesday morning

The life of a flower is short, but their beauty lasts in our minds and hearts forever. They reach for the sun, open and give life their all. When they leave, I think they feel that it was worth the effort. I wish more people felt the same way.
