Thursday Poem - Here is the Road

Here is the road: the light
comes and goes then returns again.
Be gentle with your fellow travelers
as they move through the world of stone and stars
whirling with you yet every one alone.
The road waits.
Do not ask questions but when it invites you
to dance at daybreak, say yes.
Each step is the journey; a single note the song.

Arlene Gay Levine (from Bless the Day)

the reminder to be gentle with my fellow travelers was needed.

Tabor, I should get a tattoo of that reminder - am always forgetting and sometimes wonder if I will ever get it right.

bless YOU for this magic pair! BEAUTIFUL ...

the last line:
Each step is the journey; a single note the song
is touching my soul - being prone to falling (bad eye sight) and being an enthusiastic singer (and musician) ---- shall try to figure out the meaning for my life!

Thank You for these beauties, both dreamy still capture and beautiful choice of poem.
