    • Thanks! I’ve been hanging onto this one for while . . . so long I almost forgot about it. Last night, I happened across it while paging through an old journal. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!


    • Thank you! I’m so glad you liked it. πŸ™‚

      I think flipped the lines around half a dozen times and went through a million different words, so I’m thrilled to hear the final decisions hit the mark.


  1. What becomes of those
    too weary to wander
    too daunted to dare

    Interesting idea, i.e., timid souls or those too beaten down by life. I believe that there are times when we need to be dormant, to not participate. Being the optimist, I believe that the soul continues its journey to the Light. I think we aslo can help souls here or not by providing them loving energy to make the next move. It may be as simple as a smile at the right moment, thus one should be as aware as possible of how we can affect another. Definitely a poem to think about. Thanks! hugs, pat


    • I am quite the optimist myself, but I try not to forget that darkness is what helps us remember there is light. That philosophy is what inspired this poem and a few others. πŸ˜‰

      You are so right that a smile does wonders not only for yourself, but everyone around you.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you around again. πŸ™‚


  2. I love this section:
    Joy loses its compass
    idle time goes astray
    Melancholy points the way

    Makes me think of a compass with needles spinning, and wondering which path to choose — there’s a frustration when we don’t get a clear arrow, but there’s an adventurous spirit in buckling down, choosing a path and facing whatever we find.
    The poem is haunting, but definitely casts some hopeful light at the end! Beautiful!


    • I find myself looking forward to your comments whenever I post. You always have something so insightful and beautiful to say along with such amazing encouragement. Thank you so much for reading – I’m so glad you enjoyed this one. πŸ™‚
