Life is so sinfully short
Learning to say it in a few words
Brewing the magic of brevity.
Two clenched jaws, but expectant eyes
and something lies deep inside
fighting hard to keep the spark alive.
This post first appeared on this blog in December 2016 last year.
I look at this moon
And I remember your name
Still shines through my heart.
I like the stars. It’s the illusion of permanence, I think. I mean, they’re always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from here, I can pretend…I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last, and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend…”

My eyes see black and white
You bring the sunshine, the bloom, you be
All of them rainbow colors.
Nights with you are exciting, crazy,
Mornings hot bothered, and lazy.
The closer we get
the world gets hazy.
Wait for me, oh reticent paramour!
This love, you say, is easy.

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”
― Arnold Bennett
A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare
to the jeweled vision of a life started anew.”

I went looking for quotes on New Beginnings. I found a ton of good ones, but I couldn’t choose between these two. So bumper Wise Words Wednesdays. I wish everyone a great day!
Gleaning into the future
The happiness of farewell
A lover gone by.
