Life II

An empty chair,
Rocking,
Facing,
An open window,
Rattling.
A tree outside,
Sleeping,
Leaves,
In the heavy breeze,
Rustling,
Sunshine,
Through the clouds,
Peeping,
Weeds,
In the gusts,
Swaying,
Children,
In the field,
Laughing,
Playing, Singing,
Parents,
Keeping watch,
Whispering,
Birds,
Over the picnic,
Fluttering,
Life,
Everywhere...

Life - I

Life is fleeting, just like these words,
like a tempest, raging one moment, disappearing the next,
leaving behind destruction and desolation,
which also pass, just as soon.

An evanescent resplendence,
followed by a blazing rage,
leaving behind forever,
a deathly silence.

The totality of all these fleeting lives,
a cacophony of peace, rage, and splendid beauty
that none comprehend,
and very few are eager to observe,
yet each one adds her note to the stave of eternity
