The flickering light

Fantasy frequently fades
into the tender
shattered shades of time .
as the petals
of the present
pass their prime .
And willingly
wither away
into the
youthful yearnings
for yesterday .

that this is what happens when you daydream, fantasizing about what might have happened, it certainly could lead to yearning for never was. Nice flow and method. Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Totally cool rhythm. Good read. Prophetic and profound. Good reminder to live in the now.


And great title!

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.

I call it flickering light because the present is a flickering light slowly burning out into the past.

In life you have to deal with change time doesn’t care for what is gone . It just goes on you just have to learn how to move with it and enjoy the moment before it fades back into the pastures of the past.

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.
