The death of the distance

Maybe life is not a journey

Maybe life’s a flame or a candle or a strawberry shortcake

Maybe life’s a grain of sand or an hourglass or a hot cup of coffee

Maybe life’s a bright satellite tracing an infinity symbol through the hole in bunt cake – across the distance in your eyes

Maybe life’s a waterfall or a rainbarrel or a waterchestnut

Maybe life’s not a journey

  1. Oh I like this. 🙂 Maybe life is now? It reminds me of a song out by Laura’s Story, “What if blessings come in raindrops, what if healing comes through tears, what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near. . . What if the trials of this life are You’re mercies in disguise?” 🙂 Thank you!

    • Lots of whatifs on this side 🙂

      I am ready for life to be something else for a while.
      Journey is kind of worn out.
      I want someone to wax philosophical and say, ” you know life is like a grapefruit ” or anything other than journey.Oddly enough I read an excellent essay based loosely on “life is a journey ” today.

      Maybe life could be the band Journey for awhile:

      Death- when the lights go down in the city

      Spirituality- don’t stop believin’

      Haha

      Thanks Debbie!
