In that instant time stretches.
Today relived then sloughed away.
Yesterday briefly remembered then gone.
All deeds done and lessons learned
peeled back to drop away
dead skin.

A center spark alone remains
then drifts away.

I suspect that spark is not me
nor is it mine
but rather another's.

- the end -

OK... that was beautiful.

I would S&F you again if I could, but I did it already earlier.

I just didn't know what to say then.

That happens to me a lot too.
Sometimes I just spout nonsense in response to people's work.
I'm trying restraint this month.

I think restraint means a whole other thing to me than it does to you...



But seriously... I was going to make my second entry something a little more spiritual/metaphysical and was pondering it, then read yours...

So went another direction.

Because yours is excellent.

That was awesome, left a question of whether we are the creations of those we interact with. How others mould us unconsciously from the time we are born.

The question I was shooting for was whether self identity is to be found in the accumulated aggregated sum of daily experiences or somewhere else.

Your question is good.
I could say, "Only 50 words, hard to fit everything and everyone in."
You imply though that I have. Thank you.

"A center spark alone remains
then drifts away."

Drooling over this line.
Definitely one of my favourites.
The spark is shared not owned I suppose.

A distinct possibility. Thank you.


On a personal note though, imagine:

The speaker is giving his lecture before the audience
about the wonders of reincarnation.

"And so my friends, you will never die. I will never die! I shall live again through another!"

The voice in his head responds, "That's my life you are living. You owe me. I own you."
------------------------------------------------

Your supposition seems better.

I've wrestled with this same suspicion. Not sure if I've reached a sound conclusion either.

I really hope you place with this entry pthena.

Thank you.


I spent more time on this than the other one.
No words I'd change in hindsight.

I'm glad you are satisfied with your creative effort!
(And it's really good-- beautifully expressed sobering thought about the nature of our existence if we are indeed a part of a willful creation.)

Yea.. I think that's what got me too on this story.

The word picture I can see in my head.

I think I've read this story like 20 times since it was posted.

I wish I were a graphic artist, but no.
Tried to find a picture online.
Here's a partial glimpse:
