the price of paradise

the price of paradise                      October 3, 2016
what is love
if one would not travel the seven seas
to reach the lover?
and what is a lover
if his breath is not mixed with mine?

if god hated me
we would be childhood wed.
but no,
we must travel the seas.
if god loved you
we would be breathing each other.
but no,
we must fly 7,000 miles away.

is god then dead?
no.
for we live.
for we love.

what good is paradise
if it has no price?

what god would want plucked flowers
when he could have planted trees?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
