Missing Parts

An image of; Not All There – The Enigmatic
Sculptures of Bruno Catalano

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a sculpture of a man holding a bag. The statue is on waterside, and part of the statue is intentionally missing.

Through this journey that we call life
I've seen many things and been through many highs and lows
Over time, I've given pieces of me freely
But some take more, jealously
There have been those who give more than what is asked of them
They are a rare breed, unfortunately

And as I continue to go through life,
I will meet many more
Although I wish, there will be more who give than take

Don’t pick the flower because of it’s beauty

Don’t let it grace your home and slowly wilt away

Appreciate it instead and cultivate it

Let it grow and care for it

Let it live its days

Share its beauty with the bees and the butterflies

For its beauty is meant to be shared

Magical Glow

I wake up early to see the slow rising of the sun

Its glow is ever beautiful and ever changing each time

The skies gladly wait to be painted by its light

And this is something that will always be magical to me

Teenage Crush

I remember you and how so many had a crush on you

Your boyish grin would leave any heart blue

Many were attracted with your looks

I liked you for your love of books

One look from you, my cheeks turn red, it blushes

Yes! Those were the days of teenage crushes

What is Home?

A place of comfort

And where I can just be me

Kick my feet up and relax

Let the day’s stress melt away

At times, it’s also a person who makes me feel comfortable

One that I can let my hair down

It’s also a feeling

One that brings warmth

This to me, is home

This is a digital art image. It shows a man standing in front of a square portal that shows a scene from another place. Stairs lead up to this portal.

In search for the one he lost so many years ago

He looks into portals of different worlds

In the hopes of finding the love he lost
