what are the chances?

watching the rain
coating the world
in chiaroscuro -
shades of light and dark
but really awash with grey

wondering
if the sun will be back
and when

pondering
the chances of that
and a rainbow

thinking
about luck and fate
and the roll of the dice

how much sun
how much moon
how much dark night
without any light
are we assigned
by the stars
or some deity
up in the sky

what are the chances
that this comes again

did I miss it
did it pass me by

or

is it yet to come
far into the future

do we ever know -

that what we have
is what we want

that what we need
is right here beside us

that what we are
is just a blink,
a moment in time.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
