LIFE
        a
        vision of
                    possibilities
             
          full of promise
                               that sometimes fails
                                       
                                                             becoming a
                                                                             dark
                                                                                   lonely
                                                                                           vista
                                                             love
                                                                  can
                                                                      turn it all around.

thanks elise, an Australian Aboriginal poet inspired me. I'm reading her poetry titled ruby moonlight by Ali Cobby Eckermann. 

what inspired me:

NATURE

             nature
                        can
                              swirl

like

             a falling
                   leaf

sometimes

                   turning to
                             butterfly

or bereft on the ground

                turning to
                              dust

---------------------------------------------------

I think it's beautiful  :comfort

The style makes my head spin. Glasses and bad eye sight will do that to ya' when you see things not in line. But once I got settled I figured out I was swirling by design. Nice, very nice.
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.
