Life 101

Life ...
as unclear as the future may be
in the spring 
of our youth

some things i know to hold true
entering these autumn years


safe harbors will be sought

 lovers will be found

 young will be born


new beginnings will be launched

repeating the cycle

all

over

again

Such is the beauty of life.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

That first photo is wonderful. I was thinking Titanic at first, "Is anyone alive out there???!" But then the story continued and so does life's cycle. Beautiful series of images and thoughts.

The first two images I'm completely smitten with. Loved your words with all the photos. I guess I'm in my autumn years, too...never thought of it that way. But it's nice!

Kathy said...

Love how your pics go from misty and fog-covered into highly focused! I think that compliments your narrative just in the right way!

Beautiful philosophy...I think you have a birthday coming up, don't you? Well, add 10 to that one and you'll have mine in late-December! It's very difficult for me to be philosophical or find the beauty in it. ;-) (Absolutely LOVE that first dreamy image of the boat.)
