What a pleasure to have Silence here.
To be so close and have Sadness near.
They are my friends, my enablers, my addiction.
They bring along Memory time and time again, we have made a bond, which many find wrong. They say, “leave her, she will only hold you down.” I say never, “I am stronger with her around”. My foundation was all but nothing and now is built upon her own, she shows me things and I find I have grown.
Now Memory and I leave behind Silence and Sadness and find Life and Death in the other room. Waiting, watching, no reasons, no rhymes… simply observing the passing of Time…
Time sees Memory as clearly as day, leaves Life and Death for a momentary stay, “what have you to say?”
Memory responds, “the same as yesterday, I can not remember your beginning, it is beyond my way, perhaps your company has led you astray. Find the other which fathered Life, find the other who birthed death. Ask the one who knows, for it is beyond my depth”
I watch as Time scattered away, frantic and pacing ever which way. I watched it look over Life and Death, agitated and waiting for a respond or perhaps thinking of their beginnings…
We returned to Sadness and Silence. Serenity and Calm entered. I turned to leave and find the name of this place.Looking at Memory I asked, “Where are we and when can I return?”
With an invisible smile Memory said, “It is a place called Dream, you can visit anytime you remember”
Sadness and Silence, Serenity and Calm, Life and Death. All things require balance. Nicely stated.
Sadness and Silence, Serenity and Calm, Life and Death. In all things balance. Well stated.
Thank you Hawk… they are of the same state and in so are balanced.
What a creative piece. Will be back to read again. This reminds me of the Greeks…breaking up wonders into different personifications. Love it.
Thanks TinCup, as always a pleasure
Maybe Time would quit pacing if Faith and Hope sat with them for a bit….
wise words Summer… indeed … thank you for adding more dimensions to this dream.
