opening windows let in the air
take your time when climbing stairs
mother may I, may not say
checking mirrors for a few more grays
forever here and ever not
letting thoughts come full stop
to live by the moments
awed by the details
the mystery of experience
each unique facet
the perspective of belief
colors, sounds, shapes
squeeling, a joyful noise
yes! I am amazed
at the complexity
as simple as this room
and as vast as the outer space
there is so much more to love
and so much less to hate

|Believe my faves are lines 3 and 7.:)
I couldn't agree with you more, and your imaginative approach to the subject makes the piece thought-provoking, as well as enjoyable.

|being able to recieve all things in love, Debby, is a good place to be; that's not to say we don't recognise the problems, but are able to put them into perspective and deal with them so as to remove their sting is a healthy way to go. Indeed, THEN can we fully appreciate the micro and the macro by which we are sorrounded and in which we each play our small/large part. I love the details you have chosen to illustrate your thoughts here and the word choices you have made to work them out; delightfully various. Reminds me of Snow by Louis MacNeice. xx|

|Debby, Sometimes our eyes miss what we should be seeing...we either
overlook or don't wish to see what is truthful. Great poem.

|very wise, Debby ... the mystery of experience elevates us beyond our simplicity ... moreover, our complexity is our ability to understand the emotion of the universe is love ...|

|Veritable kaleidoscope of drama and synchronicity, each facet reflecting the others. Well done Debby!

wonderful lines very well conceived.

|Love this intimate style you have going for you here. Such good lines, hard to pick "one." The last two, of course are remarkable, even after having seen similar statements before. The thing about those two lines is that it is according to who is doing the love/hate thing, it can, and unfortunately does, become switched many times.|
