Notes Found On The Refrigerator

21 Apr

The Juggler’s Riddle

I enjoy the abstinence of reality,

I can juggle life’s puzzle pieces

without any particular fatality.

 

It is not a difficult feat …for imagination, memorization,

fantasies, or alliterations;  they deplete,

falling back into play, as only one obvious piece.

 

            When I drop a piece, it is often forgotten

somewhere in the air  between the sky and my feet;

until another one appears,  balanced on my forehead,

spinning , waiting to be shaken .To be awakened.

 

I am balancing, but not walking.  I am seated,

but, I am moving as fast as the air I breathe.

 

Making this riddle, a juggler’s dream; insignificant as any dream,

unless    I       am        in it.

    I love the humor in your closing line……and the piece dropped “somewhere in the air between the sky and my feet”. Wonderful!
