Trifextra: The Pages In-Between


pageturnerblog.wordpress.com

The inception and conclusion are like bookends,

not of our own choosing.

Then there’s the storm in between;

pages filled with complicated poems and harrowing tales

With a love story threading though, hopefully.

  1. Loved it. The image of life (so to speak) held together by the bookends.

    1. With birth and death being the bookends, you have just one life to fill those pages. Ought to be with people/things you love.

  4. You know that whole journey business. It's true. It is sometimes easy to lose track of that and not be present. Thank you, as always, Atreyee!

  9. Every page does. And we only get that one page, one time, before it life turns a new page. I think about this a lot. Thanks for the visit and positive support. Can't vote this weekend but I certainly have my favorites.

  15. A great message!
    For some reason, I remembered a friend's email signature:
    "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
    "If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine"
