Diverse Paths.



Looking back at the paths,

The paths that brought us,

Brought us to where we are now,

We see all differing types.

Some along which we stumbled

Tripping over the varying stones,

Others take us to a place

Where we need to take a leap,

A leap of faith.

Many are so variable

That we struggle to find a way.

But in our lives

No matter how difficult it is

To walk to where we are now

We are here,

Here in that place we should be,

Knowing that the paths in front,

Those paths we will be taking,

Will be easier now,

Now we have the experience,

The experience of walking,

Already walking so many diverse paths.

      words that will linger in the minds of those coming to terms with the latter years of a blessedly long life,
      wonderful message

        Hmmmm walking, I wish it were easier but Osteoarthritis in my knees, spondylosis in my lumbar, Not quite on a zimmer yet but i have to think about how far i walk.
        Though metaphorically i have a good few miles in me yet and prepared for those paths wherever they lead.

        • Goldfinch60

          Thoughts on which to ponder and learn from dear friend and thank you for the needed reminders that the paths we are on are where we should be..........

                Andy,

                Michael has so many images that inspire writings on this site. Shame we can’t arrange a virtual gallery so when we need some inspiration we simply click on the gallery, find an image & write.

                You certainly created a masterpiece from such a painting.

                Thanks to you Andy & also Mr Edwards.

                Unsub.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Unsub,

                  Thank you for your comment. It is so true that images can create words in our minds I have a set of poems that I have written about art that has caused me to write words, including some of Michael's works. I will send them to you.
