{Blink}

July 22, 2008

to {blink}
or not to {blink}
is rather irrelevant
given the evaporating nature
of this substance called Life.
it is irrelevant due to
the limitations
not of our energy
which is neither uncreated
nor destroyed
but of our
stories now playing
in this or that form
this side of forever.

to {blink}
or not to {blink}
is neither the question
that stumps the inevitable
nor the answer
that trumps the unknown.

the real question and answer
suspended in immediate jeopardy
is this…
“how will we live life
within the span
of the blink?”

to {blink}
or not to {blink}
is rather irrelevant because
whether you do not
you will
and whether you do
Life foreknew
you would.

so why not just
Live?

    Bravo! Excellent flow of words that stimulate further muse. I absolutely love this portion of your stanza:

    “given the evaporating nature
    of this substance called Life.
    it is irrelevant due to
    the limitations
    not of our energy
    which is neither uncreated
    nor destroyed
    but of our
    stories now playing
    in this or that form
    this side of forever.”

    Beautifully put and not many understand or recognize that energy cannot be made or destroyed, it just IS!

    I love your style after, perusing your work. Keep it up!
