On the Way


twirling life like a rubik's cube
she searched and begged
directions to that special path
a signal to ordained fame

turning molehills into mountains
she upturned pebbles with her foot
sprinted with wild abandon until
her candle flickered in the hunt

shedding light on a faded trail
she broke off symbol watching
clung to the course she'd chosen
and, in time, that became enough

Sue,
Too oft we search for that which we already have.
Nice word path!

I love that word 'twirling' any journey in life that starts with the word twirling has got to have a happy ending. Loved the poem.

Dear Sue,
Your watercolor is beautiful.
Absolutely gorgeous. I would hang that in my house in a heart beat.
I usually read your poems a couple of times and out loud before I comment but the watercolor is so fine I just have to say something right now! You are a very talented woman. I am awed.
