life, fragile life




Could you believe it's just 5 months since those leaves were tiny leavelts..? The end of another lifecycle..

life..
all matter
no matter
how brilliant..
how ebulliant
it's all so fragile..
so fleeting and agile..
flutters into the world..
slowly..delicately unfurled
then..withers..downward age
slowly exits..this grand stage
we call earth...
and returns...to that earth..
it all...comes and goes...
and while.. we're in the throes
of just such a burst of existance..
we'd rather just sit back..and entranced..
observe...
the flowers..
and the leaves..
and sip our tea..

ahh how fragile..we are..

I agree.

And very much disagree.

We're strong.
As strong as we were made to be and as strong as we need to be to get through whatever crazy things come our way.
We're mortal and fallible, but we're not fragile...

CP - something can be fragile and strong at the same time, depending upon the intensity of its surroundings....

LIFE IS FULL OF CHOICES.. SOME MAKE US WEAK SOME MAKE US STRONG..BUT ULTIMATELY ITS ALL IN THE HANDS OF OUR CREATOR...I OFTEN SAY WHAT THE HECK IS GOD THINKING ?
AND IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I KNOW I HAVE TO TRUST IN HIM...WHAT CHOICE DO I REALLY HAVE?..DO I MAKE SENSE?

d_d..
of course it makes sense...
we have our moments..where we relish control..
and then we reach a point..where we just want to submit to something bigger..
