The World Is Round

December 13, 2021
The World Is Round ~ Photo by Patrice

The world is round
and
comes full round 
what is bad
turns to goodness 
that
does abound. 

Feel the change 
the transition
to 
beauty, grace
hidden in
sadness, destitute 

Maybe tomorrow
you will
see 
all this unfold
as
the world turns 
round you, round me.

Holy Smokes, Holy Cow

Holy Smokes, Holy Cow 
The world it turns
It revolves 
But
Not around me 
No
Not at all. 

It may tomorrow 
Or
The day after that 
And
You know 
I’m not sure
Where it turned
Way far back. 

The only thing 
I do know,
I see 
Is that it turns 
And
I take the ride 
The ride for free.

Not Sure, Not Sure Why

Not Sure, Not Sure Why ~ Photo by Patrice

Not sure, not sure why
the world turns the way it does
clouds steam across the sky
birds sing and cows call.

I stand in the midst of it all
and
I’m not sure
not sure why.

I Learn Many Things

I learn many things
I see many times
The world as it turns
Intertwines.

My heart knows a reason
To decline
The advances of the destructive
Filled with misery kind.

It comes from within
This loving gift coming from
The divine.

Understand

March 16, 2016

In a way I can’t understand
The world whirls round
Making no excuses
Denying no light
Or darkness in the night.

I don’t understand
It’s not at my command
How rivers run, showers fall
And the world turns
Again and again.

Most of all I stand
In the midst of this
Wondering
Will I ever
Ever understand?
