Lifecycle

Ouroboros Basket

Love
Hopeful union
Soul mate found
Join in pure bliss
Chosen

Conception
Intertwined energy
Yin and yang
Explode into potential
Life

Birth
Squalling infant
Wide open eyes
Gasps the first breath
Here

Hope
Ephemeral dream
Ambition to reality
Stretching, an unseen hand’s
Potential

Death
Aging comes
Grim, grey parade
Time has its due
Complete

Entropy
Gradual dismantling
Piece follows piece
Reversing each evolutionary step
Decline

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    This is beautiful and poignant. I want to recommend a song/artist If you haven’t heard it yet. It feels to me that it might resonate with you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWcxKehDrxk (Exactly by Amy Steinberg)
