Reading Shakespeare

I approach life

and love

as if reading

Shakespeare,

becoming lost

in the Tragedies,

laughing

with the Comedies,

and ignoring

the Histories.

Running away from me

 

Here

in this ancient hamlet

in this ancient house

in this ancient room

of oak beams

and leaded windows

evening falls early

in Winter.

 

No one is forgotten

nothing is lost.

Laughter

tears

family

lovers

friends

strangers.

Everyone is remembered

everything is saved.

 

It is only time

that runs so quickly

so easily

so cruelly

away from me.

Written two years ago. It is still running away from me.

Infinite futures

 

There are no paths

leading back

into the past.

But all the roads

that stretch out

towards our hopeful

wide open

infinite futures

wait for us

impatiently.

The wonder

 

In every day

there is something new

something unexpected

something different.

I remain wide-eyed

like a child

at the wonder of it.

Tomorrow

art-by-rob-hefferan

 

The best thing

about tomorrow

is that it is still

unwritten.

We may write it

mark it

draw it

paint it

stain it

brand it

fashion it

carve it

colour it

give life to it

as we wish.
