Improvation On Life

Updated on September 19, 2013

Life's joy is often hidden under rubbish

Piles of minutia created by lost souls

Yearning to be set free

Freedom is but a distant dream

A fleeting glimpse of what could be

And then the sliver of light is gone

Like a spark of static electricity

It pops in its dark habitat

Look quickly before it is gone

It only tarries for a while.

Some let the spark fade

Then, slip back into obscure dark holes

"Improvise" I say!

Grab the spark and hold it in your hand

Until the body is electrified

Let it consume the soul like a fire

Burn with passion

Open the heart

Feel life and be free again.

      Thank you, Jackie. I woke up with the image in my head. That is the great thing about inspiration: we never know when it will appear.
