Life is but crepe, a tissue-paper dream,

A blossom-born hour, a breath to redeem;

So bloom while the sun shines on petals of glass,

And call Today blessing, before it is past.

    I am wired to see the glass as “half-full,” but sometimes I drift from my purpose and perspective. Thank you for the nudge to get back on track.

      There are times when even our half-full vision gets swamped – life is just like that, isn’t it? It helps to remember that it is not a permanent shift, but a glitch, and that we can get ‘back on track’ again! Thanks Tina!

    Oh Mel! This is 5-Star and now tops anything you’ve done (that I can remember)–I LOVE it. To list my faves would be to copy every word and line–I simply LOVE it, sincerely.

  4. Paper flowers. So transient. To be enjoyed while they are there. Like life.

      More transient than we think – our small community lost yet another young man this weekend – under tragic circumstances. As you say, to be enjoyed while they are there – a mini life lesson wrapped in a beautiful bow…
