    Life is like a whirling ball

    Life is like a whirling ball,Experiencing rise and fall. In a land of ice,In a land of fire,In the realms of fancy,Shifted by desire.

At the edge of comprehension,when there is no way back,when one can’t wake up and live,when the way leads just to falling asleep. The door is getting closedto be openedwhen the time comes.

    Second chance

    While I was browsing through blogs a few hours ago, I unexpectedly found inspiration in one of them. There was a photo picturing trees lit by golden light and a forked trail running among them. First trying just to write a short rhyming comment I could not stop looking for better suited words and here it is, a product of that inspiration, together with a…

    Drumming my fingers

    Drumming my fingersNervous in expectationOf coming eventsOf nearing acts Feeling them sharplySensing them fullyBy touching tensionBy denying facts Saying it loudlyAccepting tension’s presenceThrough heart’s decisionThrough reason’s fights Reaching peacefulnessBreathing harmonyWhen there is silenceSoaring to heights
