LIFE’S UPS & DOWNS


Sometimes
life feels like
one is in a constant
Ferris wheel:
Up, up!!
Down, down..
Up down
Down up…

Slowly turning up skywards.
Slowly turning down earthwards.
Round and round it goes,
Its merry way
Without end.

Time to enjoy the scenery – if so inclined
Taking in all the colours, the views, the beauty.
Time to endure the ride.
Wishing it was all over and done with;
Pain is too much.

Sometimes
it feels like
one is
in a constant
Ferris wheel.
Up, up!!
Down, down..
Up down
Down up…

Evening is drawing to a close on this ride
Sun is going down with the most glorious blaze
I cannot take my eyes off without
gazing up at it with sheer delight-

Want to imprint this sky

full of magnificent brilliance,
deep, deep, deep into
my soul, my mind, my heart:

Colours bursting with their most dazzling,
Pinks, purples, yellows, golden tones painted over
With warm chocolate browns

Reflected so perfectly on the still water.

Sometimes
Life feels like
one is in a constant
Ferris wheel.
Up, up!!
Down, down..

SOMETIMES…

MIRROR

HOW DO I LOOK?

I turn this way, I turn that way
In this old-new black jacket.
Bought in a hurry the other day.
No time to try it
at the flee market.

HOW DO I LOOK?

Masculine look is in
Hmmm…
Trousers? Skirt to match?
Not feeling it is ME.

HOW DO I LOOK?

The sleeves are too long,
The colour is too stark,
The pockets are too deep.

How do I look!

HOW DO I L-O-O-K!

This is my first entry on the Writers’ Block Challenge.

Tis for now. Riihele xx

PS.
I feel that she is not sure at first if this coat is truly ‘her’

asking so very anxiously with every twirl on the mirror:

How do I look? How do I look?

Until finally she states with a hearty laughter:

How do I look!

Quite comical
– she comes to a conclusion with the exclamation mark –

in this far too large a jacket,
sleeves hanging way down on her dainty arms
barefoot and all – in fact, she looks hilarious!!

To me the jacket/coat looks like it is bought
second-hand and it looks so manly;
because if it was for a woman it would be more ‘fitted’.
More feminine in shape and style as well.
