Everything Is Possible!

Do lakes and stars get sick?
Do cobblestones have spirits?
Is rain removable?
Do you know how depressing to Morning
When she finds characters in bed
who has no desire to get up early for fresh air?
Can you sense the frustration
when a flat of stylishly dressed December is being misjudged and taken down?
.
Don’t you agree
That love is a tourniquet tightening the bands
about the quickly vanishing wrist of freedom?
Due to the acid of truth-everything is possible:
To be a toy snake on a TV show,
To live on crumbs of bread,
To act like a cat,
Constantly listening to the call of the Sun.

  3. What can I say?
    I love your questions, they all have answers... But you are not looking for answers here, are you?
    The questions are there and that's it.
    What is great is the way you put it

  9. I liked the last stanza, but gave a feeling of imprisonment, one seeking freedom more so than the possibility of so much...A piece that gives pause for reflection, cool! :)
    happy gooseberry day!

  14. I'm not an early riser but I do agree with the love tourniquet cutting off freedom.

    Stars get so sick that they eventually die. A lot of the stars still emitting light have actually died already...it takes a long time for the light to reach us...God, I'm being so boring...Sorry!

  22. I agree yes, and no. Love is supposed to give us wings to fly.... If there are no strings attached.
    A very deep and thought provoking read.

  25. "Do you know how depressing to Morning
    When she finds characters in bed
    who has no desire to get up early for fresh air?"

    These lines speak to me. I am not a morning person, in my everyday existence. However when I am on vacation, it always amazes me how I easily I wake at dawn and enjoy watching the sun rise.
