Bilateral

Bilateral

Blending, sweeping
Which side will you see today?
I am gold,
I am lead.
I sparkle,
I am dull.

Which do you prefer?
I am real,
I am pretend.
Prancing,
Still.

What would capture you today?
Laughter spewing in fragrant spills,
Crying tears into the valley of want.
Shouting absurdities,
Quietly observing.

Who am I today?
Completely independent,
Desperately needing you.
Awake,
In a coma.
Bilateral in my seams of quondam.

    Hmmmm….interesting my lovely Angel.
    I’m wondering if you found the image and wrote the poem?
    Or…wrote the poem and searched an image?
    I have many days when I ask myself…Who am I today?
    People can make me SO unsure of myself, then I remember.
    Look to Jesus and see who He see I am, “Who I am in Christ!”
    As usually you’ve sent me on one of my Aspie-Tangents and thinking on words.
    I know you get me and you do the same.
    I love you so much.
    Lees. xxx 🙂

      Giggle…see who He see I am,
      Ok, that’s such bad English.
      Let’s re-write that bit.
      Look to Jesus and see who He sees me to be,
      or… see who He sees I am created to be.
      I’ll let you correct it for me, I’m not freaking….I do my best with my blessings…LOL

      • Hee hee You are so funny.

        I wrote it several days ago, Monday I think, then found the image this morning. Sometimes I sit on my poems for months until I find the right image that I have in my head to go with it. I like to connect the words that make me ponder to an image that has it’s own tale to tell. I also have my collections of images that I have stored and when I write something it will remind me of the image then I use it. I have a huge collection of images stored away in my head and my computer. 🙂 I guess I am rather typative today on the comment thread. 🙂

        I always ask who I am because I tend to think I made myself up! Narf! 🙂 LOL!

        Love you too!
