Word Prompt

 

 

Exist or Live

 

He went through life by rote

Everywhere he went, he had been multiple times before

Same times, same movements, same trajectory

Like a somnambulist, he moved through existence

Never tripping, never seeing, never remembering

 

There was a danger in waking him, they said

 

Danger?

Yes, there is

 

If living life instead of existing is dangerous

If stepping outside the path

means experiencing both joys and sorrows

if awakening means seeing, smelling, feeling, tasting

 

By all means

Live dangerously

Thank you, Sammi! So impossible to resist, I’ve done this in the airport!

Name It

We give a name to

Each notable event

To mark the periods

In our life

I wonder what

Today’s epoch

Will be called

When I think back

Choices

Life is comprised of a series of aleatory happenstances. There is a fair mixture of dark and light, should we pay attention.

Those who focus only on the dark send their psyches into an abysmal place from which they feel they cannot escape.  A tragedy, if left uncared for.

Some see only the light, dismissing the dark completely; oblivious to it.  Is this a realistic choice? Is their life flat?

I like to think I am a mixture of both, taking from the dark and turning it to light, ever growing, always learning.

The Model

 

 

“Pose for me,” the artist demanded.

 

“But, I’ve never—”

 

“No experience needed. I will guide you.”

 

Before she knew it, she was in his studio, dressed in a robe, one shoulder and leg exposed ~ his.

 

For weeks she sat, felt his touch as he adjusted her robe, listened to his voice, watched him work.

 

The sculpture done, she marvelled that he had captured a part of her she knew not existed.

To Each Their Bliss

It can be found on a beach

high up on a mountain top

in the endless sea of sand that is the desert

There is no set place outside of your mind

For me, on most of my walks with

Zeke at my side or bounding ahead

My Elysian bliss is found

No matter the weather
