Capturing Life's Essence


Inside, imaginary wheels are turning, mixing sorrow
and joy of a lifetime.

It's taste is bittersweet, it's smell, that of a
funeral home filled with beautiful flowers.

Capturing the essence of life within this shell of
a body is a mysterious event and I cannot figure
out it's meanings.

Living life day to day, exhausting all possibilities,
laying them aside in peace-filled restless slumber.
