Why renounce this realm?

Sensations so full of Life

Mirror of Divine


Pure Creative Force

Command this Gift so sublime

Morphed Desires shine


Agonies abound

As do Pleasures great and small

Life's Lessons enrich


Beggar's bowl, No Thanks!

Take thy chances in Life's Stream

Rocky ride Rewards

Why indeed, Carolyn? Life's reward is in the living.
I like what you say and the way you say it. -gene.

This has the feel of "casting your bread upon the waters" and seeing a glorious bounty return, Carolyn. Why wait with "begging" bowl when the movement of water brings such fresh riches and new chances/opportunites with it? I like the spareness of your form here which compliments the mind-expanding thoughts you present within it. xx

Carolyn, life's stream is the only adventure in town for mankind -- no "rocky ride" equals no rewards to be savored -- as for the "beggars bowl", it is always empty of true spirited sustenance and contains only subsistence quantity -- I bid you joy love and peace my dear friend -- love the updated photo -- Jon Michael

Carolyn, They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and I believe it to be true. Each one of us sees things at a different
angle. Beautifully written.
