is love alive?

in spring
when newborn tendrils struggle
to find their way through cold earth

in summer
when the sun’s lips brush across open blossoms
hot,  like a lover’s kiss

in autumn
when leaves become weary and fall
onto the ground so hard

in winter
when all becomes quiet
within the snow’s embrace

our love
defies the seasons
ever-growing
ever-lasting

alive

∙ꗴ∙ Alice doesn’t live here anymore ∙ꗴ∙

Alice found it nearly impossible to
overcome her addictions
to the assorted substances
imbibed while in Wonderland ~
they remained a constant craving

once she turned eighteen
Alice left her childhood home
and managed to find her way
back to Wonderland
at long last

taking up the cello,
Alice enjoyed sitting on a pedestal
stoned out of  her mind
playing to no one
{ occasionally the Cheshire Cat would sort-of  show up }

when asked what had become of  their daughter,
her parents could only reply
“Alice doesn’t live here anymore.”

she was born to be wild

sadly living in the wrong time

always did what was expected

raisin’  kids and stayin’  home

being a proper lady

outlived her husband

and settled into widowhood

until one day

at age eighty-eight

she sold her house

bought a hog

told her kids goodbye

sayin’

man,  i gotta go

what if…..

i  was born into a family that wanted,  loved and nourished me?
i  learned from my mistakes,  never to repeat them?
i  had opportunities in another life that i  took hold of ?
i  achieved fulfillment in that life from the choices which i  made?
not fame or fortune,  but living to the most of  my potential?

§

what if  all that were possible?

i  wouldn’t give up one single person in this life
whom i love or who loves me
for even a moment as that other “perfect” me

i  was standing still

in a time dulled by shades of  gray

and shadows of  loneliness

until came the day  you looked into me

love pouring  forth  from  your eyes

warming  me with its  glow

suddenly,  i  perceived the world

bright and color-filled

blues ~ reds ~ greens ~ yellows

no longer muted

incandescent and  joyful

you transformed my life

into a dream become our reality

i  have naught to  give  you in return

but  all  of  me
