What A Night It Was
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

What a night it was,
a night to behold.
Of one being born
and one growing old.
Of one life lived
and one beginning.
One looking forward,
one looking back,
one seeing light,
one seeing black.
Oh, what a night it was.
The new babe
just opening his eyes
Father Time coming
to realize,
life has it's beginning
life has it's end.
Between those two destinations,
is living, my friend.

We're born with no teeth
We're born with no hair
We're born with wrinkles
Everywhere.

We die with no teeth
We die with no hair
We die with wrinkles
Everywhere.

Living's what happens
Between the two.
I'll do mine to the fullest.
How about you?

I loved how you put it, Marge.  Great job!

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Marge - I am impressed I am. And here I was thinking from the title that this would be about...  

(I just had mint chocolate...guess who's feeling guilty...!)

Life’s Rhythm

The time was before
and in the dark
a trickle of soft light
beguiled me
glistening my eyes
A violence I had not known
angled me
then upside down
I cried

The time was after
and in the dark
a trickle of soft light
beguiled me
glistening my eyes
A violence long forgotten
showed me
life’s rhythm
as I died

What's left is the living,
definitely the best part!
Loved your poem Marge--and you.

Tara -
So glad you felt it.

Severn -
More 'bread making' thoughts? LOL !
Fooled ya' gal !

Hoot - Thanks.

Martie - I know ... and yes,
we are somehow left with the rest of living.
We make it the 'best part'.
I loved your 'Life's Rhythm'
Love you too !
