Life's a Rubik's Cube

art & poetry by Brian Loewer

a short poem


Life's a Rubik's Cube

made of ice cubes and glue.

All the melted colors

have me so confused.


I squint and squirm

to make sense of the puzzle,

as my view becomes

more distorted and muddled.


Dripped puddles-

of a game I didn't begin,

dissolve into chaos

before I can win.

I do too Moms. It makes hubpages such an interesting place to visit.

There are so many diverse views and experiences here.

I love being transported into thoughts I would never have thought on my own.

I'm confused too at times, Brian :) anyways, that's what life's all about.

A sparky poem. Makes me awake and stop wondering.

Merry Xmas!

Ahh, puzzles and games - sometimes the best are not played to win, but merely to entertain.

Dripped puddles-

dissolve into chaos
