All of life is a poem

:a series of original quotes about what we are and how we do this thing we call life.


All of life is a poem
And we, her syllabic truths

-billie marie

There is a coyote living in the park where I walk with my dog, Zora, many mornings. We saw the animal, what looked like a coyote, walking out on the frozen lagoon one early Sunday morning. A co-worker confirmed a sighting while driving to work a couple of days after that. The next day, during another early morning meander through the park, Zora decided to play copycat and walk out onto the ice. She seemed right at ease, like she belonged. When I saw her out there, I didn’t see her as a confined house pet. I saw her as the coyote, without her leash and collar – free.

What is a poem, but an expression of life. And what is life, but a beautiful poem; spoken and chanted, built and picked apart, constantly being written by us all. How do we live it? Do we live in fear? Or, do we chose to live free?


Love Your Life Quotes

Ingratitude is the captor of joy.

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” I’ve come to believe it is actually a lack of gratitude that keeps our happiness imprisoned, leaving us wondering …What more? Where next? Who now?

When we focus on what we already have and already love, we tend to feel content. We may even find our worries diminishing, and anxiety about what else is out there to achieve, accomplish, experience or conquor no longer rules our thoughts.

Be grateful! Be free to be happy!
