Audio-Human Time

Todays post is a reading of Human Time, written by Atul Ranchod… Amazing piece that captured my attention and won a semifinalist position in a national poetry contest.

Thank you, Atul, for granting me the privilege of making this recording…

Sweet then Bitter

blog contrast

“The world is your oyster!”
Dreams conjured
Plans made
Postcards collected
Then back to one’s home.
All sweet then bitter!

Hormones rage
Partners sought
Love verses lust
Longing verses loneliness.
All sweet then bitter!

Babies birthed
Milestones achieved
Proud parent smiles
Then empty nested
All sweet then bitter!

Through all the times
Day granted after day
Opportunities new and fresh
All sweet on sweet!!

Good times, bad times
Endurance mustered
Light conquering darkness
Hate surpassed by kindness
All sweet on sweet!!

Whatever the journey
Memories are made
Relations are forged
And legacies remain.
All sweet on sweet!!

And all the while
A timeless piece
Awaits its turn
To be uncovered.

Have you found your ‘sweet’?
Unwrap yourself a little
All sorted soft centers
Await your discover,
Making the transient painless
And the essence of meaning constant
For here lies the sweetest of sweet!!!
