fairy tales and beyond

IMG_1277

Many of you will remember the story of Cinderella and the glass shoes.  It has been interesting over the years watching as  the storylines that are shown, in the “romantic” interest themes are so different.  Today’s young do not wait for their prince charming to come and rescue them from their life of toil and grime.

I felt the hurt, a couldn’t stop the single tear from falling

you saw my pain, and gently wiped it dry

We played with dolls, we dressed them, told them stories, cared for them, till the time came, when they were put on a shelf, and left there to amuse themselves, they were part of our past.

we fell in love, every day was sun filled

I walked on air and saw every petal of the single rose

you brought to me each day

I dried the petals and safely tucked them away

I knew I would keep and cherish them all my days

Time changes us, sometimes we stay on the same path that our love is on, and often times, as the world opens up to us, we find ourselves in different parts of the city, coming home only to eat, sleep and then we return to the life we have in another part of the “world’…. yes world, because the world we shared with someone at a different time and space,  is now no longer where our daily focus is.. Our world has gotten bigger and with it, our thoughts and wants are no longer the same.

One day I asked myself, what was in that pretty vase

for I had long gone past the time

when it was part of what I did that mattered  in my every day.

Some of us, can smile, remember the memory and move on.  We clean out the vase, and either give it away, or put it to another use … something more in step with how we are … today…

Once upon a time

this was an acreage of vibrant life

that rang with the call of birds,

who had their homes in the trees that stood there

now the land has been cleared

the wild life that had called this area their home

have had to move on

change is the only constant in life

fairy tales, are a part of growing up

the reality we live

through our journey in life

the character we build

the lessons we learn along the way

these are what takes us into beyond

Love is everywhere

love IS forever

material possessions are temporary

the only love that last forever

is one that is free to BE

True love transcends all earthly boundaries

and it all begins

within

Oh Mr Dragon, how are you?

Oh, you want a sunny day,

your roar I know, will make it so

if only I could roar like you
