Perception - Poem by Rose Judnick

Life is a whisper in the wind;
The lilting melody of a Robin's song
Echoing through the trees.
Life is the beauty of a rainbow
With its soft luminescence
Glowing in the dark summer sky
After a welcome rain.
Life is a subtile blending of
Colors, voices and sounds
Filling our senses -
Consoling us,
Deceiving us with an illusion of reality.
Life is a moment in time,
The tick of a clock counting out
The minutes of our mortal existence taunting us.
Life is a myth;
A kaleidescope of vibrant ever-changing colors
Patched together with broken dreams;
A pot-pourrie of happiness and sadness,
Of hope and despair.
Life is a roller-coaster
Lifting us to the utmost highs -
Exciting us, intriguing us;
Then letting us down.
Life is a mystery.
Life is whatever we perceive it to be.

    my favorite part was 'a kaleiddescope of vibrant ever-changing colors' the images that come to mind are amazing. you have the great gift of being able to take your readers someplace else. the last line is the most truthful, i think. everyone looks at life a different way. (Report) Reply
