Choices

 

I entered from the court-yard

and immediately saw the

spiral stair case leading upward

 

It was now or never

the choice was mine

and mine alone

turn around and leave

or…

see what was waiting

for me at the top of

that beautiful staircase

 

Was fate or fortune

waiting there?

With shaking legs

I began the climb

 

Reaching the top

all I can do is

SMILE …

Looking Ahead…

Looking Ahead …

 

Lonely country back roads

Driving aimlessly with no

destination in mind

 

The familiar yellow sign

indicates an upcoming

curve in the road

What lies around

that bend?

More of the same

Or …

A sudden surprise?

 

Regardless of what is

revealed on the other

side … adventure is

the best part of life …

Peace

Peace

 

These days I more often look for

Solitude …

Peace and quiet …

A place for contemplation…

reflection…

renewal…

 

Peaceful …

No phones

No TV

But most of all

No internet

No distractions at all

 

A place where I am

able to sit and think

or read

or write

or do nothing at all

for hours on end

 

A place all my own

where the world can

never find me

A place of freedom

and sanctuary to

find myself and

let myself go

Not dependent on

anyone or anything

 

A little spot of

Serenity until it

is time to enter

the world again…

Hiding …

Hiding…

We are all guilty…

Each of us hides behind

something

We mask who we really are

 

Some hide behind

a persona …

a name not our own …

ideas that are deceptions …

 

Sometimes we hide

so much and so often

who we are to others

that we forget ourselves

Crossroads

Crossroads

 

Running hell-bent for leather

in the driving rain I stopped

suddenly when faced with not

one shift in the road…

but several

 

Moving wet hair from my

eyes I realized what was

before me … not just any

Crossroads

But …

Roads running in four

directions …

Creating a star of

sorts …

Meaning more than

a usual decision

what was before me

was life changing …

Whisper

 

“Release me”, she pleaded.

“No, never!” he said.

“I must go,” she told him.

“Please,” he whispered.

“You can’t leave me like

this,” his voice filled with tears.

“I must. There is no choice.”

“Goodbye, my love,” she said,

her heart breaking.

Disappointment

Disappointment

 

In life there are chances and choices

It is said … ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained’

‘expect nothing and you will not be disappointed’

When did we become a world of cynics?

 

Do we no longer care …

Or …

Do we care too much

and pretend not to care

to save face…

to save our hearts…

to make sure we are

never vulnerable…

 

I once heard happiness

is much sweeter after

disappointment …

not sure I can believe that

because …

I am still waiting for

the Happiness …

Borrowed Time

Borrowed Time

 

We all have it …

Time …

The same 24 hours

Every day as everyone else

 

Regardless of

how much we wish …

how much we try …

We cannot make

more time

 

Some say time flies

Others say it crawls

Some lose track of time

Others are always on time

 

Regardless of where we

are with time …

Early

Late

or

Always punctual

We have the exact

same amount of time

 

Wouldn’t it be

wonderful if when we

needed an extra

hour or two

We could call up a

friend to ask for

a few extra hours

they will not be using

 

We all know time is

fluid … or at least

most people I know

believe in that idea

Being able to shift

a few hours from one

person to another

is that endless

beautiful dream …

Laces of Elaboration*

Laces of Elaboration*

 

Words strung together aimlessly

or so it would seem …

when in reality they are

carefully chosen

seemingly innocent yet with

underlying meanings

so hurtful …

filled with disdain …

backstabbing …

an agenda of intent

meant for targeted people

or perhaps only one

 

These words …

These laces of elaboration*

are not as cleverly

hidden as hoped …

Fog

Mysterious …

Sneaky …

Closing things off

from the rest of

the world …

Fog …

Is it friend …

Or …

Foe …
