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?


beauty eclipsed #8: focus inward


“Our most defining qualities – love, beauty, hate, fear – emanate from within us. If you aren’t content with life, focus inward and change yourself.”

beauty eclipsed #7: share your creativity

“By keeping creative ideas to yourself, you rob our world of beauty. There is no lack of negative, ugly and destructive images and messages broadcast each day. Share your creativity without fear. Ideas that inspire and uplift, regardless of their monetary value, contribute light and beauty to our world. And that is beyond the assignment of financial worth.”
