Changing sameness

All’s changed and all’s the same. Again the sky is cloudy. Again this place is crowded. Again those young faces, filled with embarrassment. What do they know about adult life challenges? Nobody taught how, nobody taught when. When, my friend, have we seized to be a part of it? Why, my friend, are we supposed to leave? Still welcoming the gusts of fresh air, still not avoiding the rain, still burning our fingers with an icy mojito…

All’s the same but all’s changed. Never shall the sky be as blue as it was. Never shall the clouds recreate the pattern of that day. Never shall this place be crowded with us; with us and all our friends and the friends of friends. Never shall this place smell of us, be overwhelmed with us, overflow with us. It shall always lack us. Be deprived of us…

All has changed but all is the same. The game was postponed, the plans were cancelled. This place still retains the smell of us. You know? Fresh mint is in the air…

Inevitable- Changing Sameness

Today’s Daily Post’s promt was the word “Inevitable” and the infinite variety of associations it may bring up. For me, inevitable are the changes, the process of growing up and facing your new self. The more you resist it, the most persistent are the changes. So, the only reasonable response is to embrace them and live in harmony!

 

Gravity: Sunset, beach, a heap of stones

I’m not particularly fond of stony beaches… They seem strange and surrealistic to me. Still, Batumi beach, Georgia, has an atmosphere of its own. You can spend hours building towers of stones, watching gravity and the power of water washing them away. And, as a variant, you can grab a pile of them home, as a memory of those precious days! (Special thanks to the photographer who took this incredible pic)

Today’s Fave Oh Wonder – Shark

Two phantoms
It’s you… It’s me… It’s you and me
In the magic of the night
We are lonely… You and me,
But me is you and there’s no me…

Bitter days have come and passed
There’s no future and no past
Mere phantoms, souls are nude,
Together we embrace the solitude.
Gloomy haze of grief is gone
Nothing new in the sun
At last we warm up in the moonlight
That glitters bright through the night…

It’s you… It’s me… It’s you and me
In the magic of the night
We are lonely… You and me,
But ME is YOU and there’s no me…

Time Spiral

Time Spiral

It goes around and around and around,

Takes you here and there, all round,

Takes you up to the moon, and back to the ground,

New places, then back again to background,

Then you look back to see what you found,

But once in a fury you burn every tie and bound,

You try to flee, but it’s faster than hound,

Oh, my, what hound? The speed of the sound…

But once you stop it fools you round,

It seems a lake, but it’s too profound,

Wanna dive in? And what if you drowned,

It only knows if you be hanged up or crowned!

Till death do us part

I’ll be by your side

My life and my time

Eternally intertwined!
