Wheel of Life

Inexorably life’s

Wheel turns

We know



Come hell

High water


On cobble stones

Potholed roads

Unforgiving pavements


I weathered

Them on a wing

And prayer




In your promise


Heart in mouth

Crossed tunnels

Waited for light


Only light flooded

At appointed time not before

I carried on undeterred


Now, I seek nothing

You bestow anyway

I accept as your grace


Joy and pain

Seem alike these days

As I become detached


Ready to journey on

Mingle with the earth

From whence I came


Come fetch me

When you may

I’ll keep my tryst


Tell us your thoughts
