Gone in a Blink

Life is a blur,
Gone in a blink.
Day after day,
Pushed to the brink.

Pile on the work,
Do more with less.
Take, but not give,
Lord, we're a mess.

Today's Tendril...

Each of us has a horizon in our hearts.

On some days we travel toward sunrise.

On other days we travel toward sunset.

It is only when we stop travelling that the journey is truly over.

Boundaries

I rise when the sun yawns," said the vampire.

"I prowl when the moon is a white hole in the night," said the werewolf.

"I haunt the living when the clock strikes midnight," said the ghost.

"I come ashore when the tide is high," said the sea monster.

"I appear on the left shoulder whenever the opportunity presents itself — which is often," said the Devil. And the Devil smiled.

The others felt a chill go up their spines.

The End

"Boundaries" is a Said the... composition.

Today's Tendril... Bridges (Remixed)

Burning bridges — idiotic.

Letting bridges fall into disrepair — lazy.

Never building bridges — lonely.

Washed out bridges — unforeseeable.

About

Based on a photo taken at The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze years ago, "XO" is an artified celebration of the season — and a wonderful reminder of an evening spent meandering through fields of orange.

The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze is online at http://www.hudsonvalley.org/events/blaze and https://www.facebook.com/PumpkinBlaze.

How do you know when a relationship has gone bad?

When you go from being the apple of someone's eye, to the worm of their eye.

Today's Tendril...


There are signs of maturity that often go unseen —
The scars,
The stitches,
The scrapes,
And the dents that the heart collects over time.

Unseen, that is, until they surface in form of perseverance,
Patience,
And discipline.
