Life

25 Jul

Life is a place in time, borrowed from the Universe

Birth to death in dreams to diverse

A fleeting time to enjoy and embrace 

Life is where living takes place

    If we are only borrowing I hope we have a way to pay it back later or the interest through eternity.. well you can imagine… maybe… big Grin. Liked your write!

    LOL Payback….. I like that.
    I think we are spirits having an earthly experience in these bodies. Having experienced a few ‘epiphany’s now, I am convinced there are other realities that we just can’t see or feel, only at certain times when we are intune and open to them. Lovely prose and picture.

    The universe has room for us to expand,
    Like a beach with only one grain of sand,
    One lifetime to experience the here and now,
    Adjust and learn the challenges somehow,
    And enjoy what new comes my way,
    Living, giving, and growing each day.

    Lovely photo.

    Life is indeed a journey that starts with our birth and ends with our death. The journey for some may be short, while for others not so, but in between this journey of life is living.

    Insightful words.
