All My Life

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

May be an image of indoor


all my life

 

 

it’s inexplicable to me

how the juxtaposition

of light and shade

stay as constant as

the winters

and springs

the summers

and falls

of all my life.

damn, Kelly....
such a compact poem...and yes, the juxtaposition of seasons and how they describe our

lives in various ways.
This is so good....and the brevity allows us to roam.

"there are places I remember, in my life, though some have changed, not for better just forever"
ah...life...the only constant is how much it will change.

I very much enjoy reading your writing.
Black and white, day and night, shade and light, yin and yang, life and death. There is balance in all things. That's what Solomon was pointing out in Ecclesiastes and what Buddha taught in his writings. In fact, almost every known religion has some belief in balance. The transcendentalists believe everything in the physical realm is a representation of a greater spiritual truth, if we can only find and understand it. But first we must look for it. I enjoyed your poem.

A beautiful phrase... and it is a wonder how nature is so constant...the lights and shades at different times of day and the seasonal change that keeps winter, spring , summer and fall just as they have been for thousands of years! And it's been that way all of my life too!
Vert lovely Kelly.
Best, B

Thank you for the warmth of your words. So deeply appreciated!
How resonant and profound your expertly chosen words, image and account of awe are in your musing of this truth. So much is understood in the telling lines and felt in between them. Here is the cyclical nature of life, the chiaroscuro nature of it, the dark and the light of it…and the strength of we who traverse it. Gorgeous write- brava my dear friend.

You are welcome, dear Kelly. I hope you are enjoying the days of Summer.
A short poem with a big message. So nicely expressed and the perfect picture for it. It gets down to opposites when you think about it. Nice write!

Happy Birthday Kelly... You are a Poet for all Seasons.... and every Reason to Juxtaposition your Moods when Spring becomes Summer and later... Autumn becomes Winter. Someday we will lie down in the Snow and make Angel Wings and then we will fly away to other Galaxies . gently, Pat
