Varying Perceptions

    The other day while hiking on the  heated desert landscape,  I spotted a black hole. The curious photographer in me, suggested I peek in. Thinking to capture something creepy, and creative; and maybe gain a new perspective on life.
Well, not sure what I found, but
I think it was certainly aware of my glaring presence.
I saw absolutely nothing in the hole but blackness. I took a few shots, then before moving away, I shot one more close up and left.
As I returned home, I began editing and enhancing my photos as usual, when I noticed this creature. It seemed to be glaring intently at me. This sudden awareness sent shivers down my spine!  For I realized,  that only an hour earlier I had been starring down this hole, two inches or less from a creepy and somewhat awesome creature!
Now that brings me to wonder, what was he was thinking about when he looked up from his dinner,  *to his horror* stocked! “Who is this creepy human paparazzi*  that has imposed on my privacy!”
Perception is in the eye of the beholder.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life

If tomorrow was the last day of your life

What dream would you dream

What life would you touch

What face would you love to see smile

What heart would you like to see changed

What person would you reach out to

What truth would your image reflect in your mirror

Would you be willing to be true
to thine own self and fly

or in spite of yourself
Rebuke your sky

JE T’AIME

I want to write a song, but I’m afraid it
will hurt too much

I want to write about how I feel, can’t, for it’s all too real

I want to touch the ones I Love,
but I’m not certain they would hear

I want to say how much I love you,
but I’m afraid of rejection

I want to speak of peace, but it seems so  faraway

Why did I not wisper my thoughts
When I had a chance to see your smile

Waking up is the hardest part
Destitution my reserve

Fonts in braille, differentiates my  persuaded heart

Can you hear the words i say
Je t’aime
