A Metaphor for Life

A Metaphor for Life
we have our patterns
we have our habits
we like to challenge ourselves
but there is movement
imagine swimming a set number
of lengths in a pool
and going for a time record
but unknown to you…
there is slow movement
the length of the pool can be changed
by sliding a divider to even
make 2 pools out of one
not looking up it takes a while
to recognize the game is up
you can’t win it
there is the gift
when movement creates change
we can change to acceptance
drop our personal goals
and simply enjoy
the fun of swimming

Celebrate

Celebrate
celebrate this life you’ve been given
celebrate every day you have risen
bask in the sun
chill in the waters
celebrate all of life’s gifts
as Earth’s sons and her daughters
celebrate the opportunities
that call for attention
to the smallest of things
give an honourable mention
choose to live life
thru the open loving space in your heart
from the day of your birth
to the day called to depart
live love as your choice
every day you restart
celebrate and rejoice
and give thanks

Polymer

Polymer
lost in the process of classification
defining a word that needs explanation
expanding into the field of chemistry
and the natural/unnatural forms of bio-mystery
water is a monomer in its simplest form
when as a gas it does not need to conform
cooled to a liquid, influenced by its neighbours
it now has complications and different behaviours
these mysteries of chemistry will help to discern
how a heated up planet and her waters will learn
learn to adjust, learn to compensate
and how all of life will still inter-relate
