On Defying Gravity

March 15

Many words are unfinished and are insufficient;

 

 

I carry them around in 

a pocket

until it is too full.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many tasks are incomplete.

 

 

 

 

 

But,

 

 

 

life     lives.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There comes, and

then there comes 

 

a stopping, and  devastating

 

 

 

     death

 

 

 

 

 

  Horrors,    and  abhorrence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And along comes life.

 

 

 

 

It is relentless,

 

 

 

and cannot be stopped;

 

 

 

this LIFE

 

 

 

 

 

Even coinciding gravity,

 

 

there is an all-powerful life,

 

 

overcoming all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the same street where fear and grief reside,

 

 

 

is beauty, and laughter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love life,

 

 

 

and sometimes I am afraid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The piglights are on here tanight!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May I impose on you so much,

 

as to suggest


that you

 

 

light  for  yourself

 

a candle

 

 

tonight?

 

 

 

 

 

Peace, light and laughter to you today.

When I originally completed this page I was unable to find a better title than "March 15."

I followed it with an appeal for better name ideas.
 

Noella LeDrew (www.noellaledrew.com) kindly contributed "On Defying Gravity."

I like it. 

Thanks Noella.

 

 

 

 

Life is relentless.

I love it.
