|Heliconia Blooming in the Backyard|

This trilogy of linking poems is more personal than some of the other offerings of linking poetry within Another New Beginning. While each poem was written from remembered thoughts of past experiences, these three reflect a stir of memories accurately represented by a smile of sadness. Sad only because life is so fleeting and we don't become aware of its rapid passing until we look at it from a position of stillness.
With the sound turned off, every action has a new interpretation. That thought just came to me and may not apply here, but I liked the feel of the words as they rolled around in my mind. Before you write the final chapter of your life, before you ask for that special dessert, before you reach Cloud 99, take some time to turn the sound off in your hectic life and absorb the sight of a shimmering sky, the flavors of a favorite cake, conversation with a loved one, and turn your differences into a successful enterprise.
Enjoy the good life ahead, before you spend another holiday with no candles.
