Life

What is life

but a series of events
disconnected and connected --
from mundane moments
to those that change your life forever.

A single day may not seem like much...
splashing in a pool
sharing some minute slice of life.

Yet wrapped together these moments
become the tapestry of life...
colorful, strong,
gently-woven memories.

What a thoughtful and beautiful post. Is that you were your big sisters in the snow scene?? Wow!

Yes! That's a picture of my big sisters and me in the snow! Cute, huh?

Roban so glad you steered me over to this post.
When you get a break from teaching I'd love to read some more of your poems.......the ones you will write, if not written yet!

'a series of events disconnected and connected'....'the tapestry of life'....

Such beautiful words, so meaningful......
