LIFE’S UPS & DOWNS


Sometimes
life feels like
one is in a constant
Ferris wheel:
Up, up!!
Down, down..
Up down
Down up…

Slowly turning up skywards.
Slowly turning down earthwards.
Round and round it goes,
Its merry way
Without end.

Time to enjoy the scenery – if so inclined
Taking in all the colours, the views, the beauty.
Time to endure the ride.
Wishing it was all over and done with;
Pain is too much.

Sometimes
it feels like
one is
in a constant
Ferris wheel.
Up, up!!
Down, down..
Up down
Down up…

Evening is drawing to a close on this ride
Sun is going down with the most glorious blaze
I cannot take my eyes off without
gazing up at it with sheer delight-

Want to imprint this sky

full of magnificent brilliance,
deep, deep, deep into
my soul, my mind, my heart:

Colours bursting with their most dazzling,
Pinks, purples, yellows, golden tones painted over
With warm chocolate browns

Reflected so perfectly on the still water.

Sometimes
Life feels like
one is in a constant
Ferris wheel.
Up, up!!
Down, down..

SOMETIMES…

  3. Yes, I see a definite 360 influence here! I’m familiar with Writer’s Block challenges and I often read the poems that come from them. A few of the poets are on my friends list on Yahoo 360.

    I’m trying out multiply.com, too, as a replacement for Yahoo 360 when it closes early in 2008. You can find me there as Aramink. Mike Carson, who often does the Writer’s Block challenges, is on my friends list on both sites.

    I’m also Aramink on 360. I will look for you now that I know our 360 circles overlap!

    And I really like your poem!

    It was so hilarious how we bumped into one another yesterday
    and trapezing through three sites connected on Multiply!! lol

    THANKS so much for the encouraging comment of yours.
    Rii 🙂
