Endless Cycle

moon
shines on broken
glass 
filled with whiskey on the
rocks 
tell the future and 
the past
catches up with
men
go to
war
cycle never 
ends
of a rain
bow
to the karma
moon 
shines on broken
glass

For Open Link Monday at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads

Life is a ball! It will just go on! Only some concerted efforts will make it detour or deflect a little! Nicely Gail!

Am back, Gail. I just read a memoir called When Broken Glass Floats, about the life of a young girl and her family under the Khmer Rouge. An amazing life, and she rose out of that life of starvation, slave labor and oppression to prove that our spirits do rise.........your lines about the broken glass made me think of that book.

This is both clever and full of truth (some joyful, some dark). Very nicely done.
