Life's a Rubik's Cube

Updated on November 21, 2013

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.

      Maria! I'm glad to see you're still reading my poems, even though you're no longer hubbing. I feel encouraged every time you stop by. Thanks so much for your kind words.

      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-

      of a game he didn't begin,

      dissolve into chaos

      before he can win.
