"All Dressed Up And Nowhere To GO…"

All dressed up and no 'where' to go?…
Come to the Art Festival and see
see
see.

See all the 'pretties' -
and the people too.

Feel the pulse
as the crowd flows by
and along;
watch the eddies...
and the people too.

See them walk, run, duck,
and interleave,
interweave and avoid...
sheer Poetry In Motion itself!

...and the eddies?
The 'eddies' - each a pause;
the punctuation -
a momentary attraction,
distraction -
a memory forgotten with their next step.

Watch the eyes as they pause,
dismiss, and pass
on and on
over and over... things and people both.

All those eyes are I's,
each a life and yet
each an other as well.

See the Artists.
See them selling – their soul(s) to pay the rent,
  their 'hearts' for a cup of coffee.
So many bits and pieces fall away
  over and over, as each passing hand
  reaches in and grasps then takes yet another
  bit away…
to gather dust and cobwebs
and end as Flea Market 'treasures'
- each bit of soul passed on and on…
such is eternity and forevermores.

Waggy, We give by not taking and take by not giving... words to live by my friend.

Great work as usuall. I always wander when I share a piece of work if it is really giving it up to others. How differant the piece becomes with other viewers, but yet how terrible it would be to not share.
