Zoning Poem

I'm beginning to think I should rename my posts for Wednesday to Wednesday Words - because it seems to me I most write poetry for these entries (when I remember to do them).

Today's entry is a zoning poem - basically I write these by plugging into some music, letting my thoughts go and just writing what comes into my mind.

If the journey is the destination
And how you get there matters not
Who is to say what is right and what is wrong
Should we judge, should we comment
Or should we see within each other a similar longing
A desire to know, to learn and to be

We each travel roads and paths
Some more worn than others
And some brand new, forging ahead
To traverse through fields and deep gullies
Places we have yet to journey and some we return to regularly

We weep for sorrow and joy
We marvel at the connections hat we see before us
And we detour around those we fear
Around and around
Until finally we can bring ourselves to face them
Running the emotions, finally free and ready to move forward

We spiral in and down and up and back
Over and over we go through each journey
Learning new things, avoiding others
Over and over we will journey, this is our purpose
To seek what is at the core, to finally cast off illusion
To have walked the journey and come out the other end reborn.
To be one, earth, body, sky

The Limitless becomes a part of us, within and without.

Musing Monday

What an awesome way to look at life, to take it in stride and embrace it all as part of the continued journey.  Too often we get caught up in how things aren't working out the way that we planned instead of embracing whatever new events are now being placed before us.  This is not an attitude of uncaring, as many who think this way are accused of (I know I have been), it is a matter of recognizing that sometimes things change and  it is all a new adventure and sure we may take a moment to mourn the loss of what we thought should have been, but generally we pick up with what we have and we run with it.
