CAN IT BE?

CAN IT BE?

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Is this all there is? Is this all we are?

"
CAN IT BE?

Can it be that this is all there is?
The coolness of endings...
The darkness of worlds.

Can it be that we are present
In our own absence
While observing reflections in mirrors?

Can it be that futures past
Require noticing details
Once hidden beneath a stoic smile?

It can be.

    After dreaming that I was a cartoon character, delighted at such a dream and so disappointed at waking and finding oout I was not... Am I just the reflection in the mirror?
    I'm scared to blink now in case I wake up in Kansas.
    And thank goodness I threw out those ruby slip ons... Not my colour.
    I need a lot of xoffee, immediately 😀

    Is it too much or not enough? Somehow both, a stoic smile, present in our own absence. A beautiful write, it's simple yet leads the reader into so many directions.

    That dear Sharon is one hell of a question that many ponder on. Who knows what else there might be. The thought of heaven is quite appealing, but I don't know anyone who has been there. We have to make the most of what we have got incase this Is it. Sending you all good wishes.

    LOL You and me too Dave. Thanks for reading. ~Sharon
    Ah, the great Peggy Lee question. Perhaps this is all there is, but maybe we've only seen a microscopic part of it.
