Labyrinth

The long and winding road

How long does it take?

The way changes direction

Am I lost?

To move forward I must turn around

Can I turn back?

Absorb the kindness and listen

When will I find the center?

A measured response hears

Can I stay?

To walk the walk

I must follow the way

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony

  1. Thank you Carl for your fine poem. Today on a quieter day, I’m appreciating the chance to read it a few times. Then close my eyes and dive deeper into the frequent change in direction, needing to turn around, going with the inconsistency’s and irregularities of living. I need to walk a labyrinth now. Be well friend.
