Ebbing and flowing


Colour me black, colour me white; colour me yellow with sprinkles of pink.

Colour me bright with an array of sparkles

It taints not the grey within, Eeyore has nothing on me,  I smile, bright as the sun.


Take two: 

Beyond the mount the gods arise to the sound of Cilo and her sisters,

Soaking in nectar, sipping ambrosia, they summon the stars to adorn their paths, like light through a prism they shine in glory.

Olympus, I long for thee, let me feast on thy beauty alone.

Take three:

We shall build a tower up to the gods, we shall adorn the towers brightly, the gods shall smile in delight.

Nay, we shall cover it in ashes, the gods shall bark and rave.

Aye, we shall cover them in both, the gods shall applaud our wisdom, for such is the tide  of life they bid  us live.

Life is …. #10

Life is … a rainbow.

It happens when the sun is blazing down and the heavens are pouring forth without mercy.

In the midst of natures mixed emotional show we fail to admire/enjoy the awesome display put on by the rainbow.

Life is created in the mist of mixed events (For example: the blazing sun could stand for strong emotions during sex and the rain could stand for an orgasm/ejaculation), it continues in the middle of mixed events (wars and weddings), it ends with mixed events (Some die naturally, others don’t. Some are mourned, some are celebrated to be gone).

Life happens …

The rainbow is a sign that being alive in the midst of chaos is reason enough to be thankful, a nudge to go on even though everything doesn’t make sense.

Hi there, thank you for stopping by today. This is the tenth edition of my ‘life is’ series where I try to relate life to different concepts/ideas in society. Would love to hear your thoughts on life is … a rainbow.
