Landscape of Life

Rich layers of skin once lush and tan; now whittled down to a wrinkled hand.
Landscape of Life has intervened; a rip and tear from every seam.
Why, oh why, does it take a loss to teach us the power of the coin we toss?
Looking back on all the sorrow; never enough to give or borrow.
Clouds may pass to bring blue sky; although time still finds a way to cry.
Tears of sadness as memories flow; not enough ribbon to cut into bow.
Bring back the past to find a way; although how far back, I cannot say.
For if the record skips a bit; life would lose the current fit.
No longer would the person meet, the person meant to cross the street.
Landscape of Life is how it is meant; cherish each treasure that God has sent.
Believe in each gift and hold it close; precious moments remind as fire embers glow.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
