——

Windows, or opportunities?

Soft winds blowing in, kiss your cheeks,

Tangle through your hair, airy fingers.

Wind chimes jingling, every slight gust.

—–

Windows, or opportunities?

Walking a certain path, changing direction.

At a crossroads, which trail to take?

Each road leads to whimsy, grace, ideas.

—–

Windows, or opportunities?

She saw a warm soul beneath his icey cold,

They nurtured the tiny flame as it grew,

There were fireworks and heat to enliven them both.

—-

Windows, or opportunities? 

It wasn’t her dream, not the one she pictured.

But life moves, people change.

Dreams, our desires, can change in an instant.

—–

Windows, or opportunities?

He cheated on her, too many times to count.

She tells herself, ” I stay for the kids.”

The greatest gift she gave, taking them all away.

——

Windows, or opportunities?

A window is a second chance,

When a door shuts before you, look to the side,

A window awaits, but you have to decide to climb out.

—-

Windows, or opportunities?

One in the same, you’re climbing down to the unknown.

Leaving locked doors on your way.

Outside is a ethereal magnificent place

—–

Opportunity and new beginnings await.

Don’t forget to look for the windows in life.

Photography 101 – Day 2 – A Road


Photograph a Road

We all come across roads in our life. Roads that lead someways and roads that lead other ways. A crossroads can actually be an archetype for a decision. One must decide which way to go in life when facing certain choices. One road may lead to some place good while the other may lead to some place bad. Or both roads may lead to someplace wonderful, to an Ithaca or both to some place horrible.

The Road to Ithaca

is poem about an archetypal and mythical journey to some place amazing and fantastic. The voice in the poem faces danger and all sorts of different things on the way. But in the end we learn it is the journey that is important. Do we facing a crossroads dare an “Ithaca” a wonderful and adventuresome journey to the unknown. There’s only one way to find out. One must choose a road. . .
