If Even for a Moment
I don’t believe we are puppets –
dangled by the whims of some god
or some spirit or the Universe.
I don’t believe that anything is “meant to be”.
But I certainly do believe
with vehement inconsistency
that many things are *not* meant to be!
And when we can redeem those injustices,
the world makes more sense –
if even for a moment.

Prompt: Open Mike Night at D’Verse Poets Pub
I’ve just read the below poem by Kirsten Dierking and it stirred me to think of my lover. And as the mind does, those metathoughts/feels then bubbled into three poetic expressions: one in the above poem, one expressed in the following short aphorism, and one by my poem (A New Nest) in my previous post.
My love for you is not borne from thinking of you as perfect,
but I nurture a perfect vision of you because of my love. — Sabio
So thank to Kirsten for the inspiration!
Lucky — by Kirsten Dierking
All this time,
the life you were
supposed to live
has been rising around you
like the walls of a house
designed with warm
As if you had actually
planned it that way.
As if you had
stacked up bricks
and built by mistake
a lucky star.
