Workshop # 2
Sometimes we live life too fast
and yearn to take a seat.
At times our hearts thrive
to embark on life's journey.
And then there are other times...
when the youthful exuberance and elder wisdom entwine
and become as one
As the spokes of a wheel
unite to make a wagon advance along its way.
With arms embracing one another
The elders hold steadfastly to the exuberance.
With eyes of wildfire,
the youthful ones strive to discover
new breathtaking sunrises
and soothing sunsets.
As the journey of life continues,
wheels of strength and endurance,
there come times
when our eyes close
to focus on the wisdom of the past.
Many individuals note:
How can the past be another stepping
stone to my future?
One way is to embrace heartily
the experiences gained and
the losses and triumphs thereof.
"Gear up, my fellow companions,
and again turn the wheels of life."
A never ending story is written
through every path trod
and every heart touched.
is like a fountain of youth
for one's soul.
If nothing else, take heart in this:
Keep the wheels constantly moving;
Don't fret over future endeavors.
Because the wheels turn in so many perfect circles,
we dare not try to fathom them all.
Completeness shall lie ahead for thee and thy loved ones.
I close my eyes and pray.
