Shine on

Thoughts and dreams polished
By years of light and space
Tripping over spaces
Cobblestone worn
By faceless forms moving about
On their journey.
Highs and lows
Each different and unique
To the soul that treads
And the wheels hiccup with each turn
Moving forward
Shining on.
Who came before
And travelled these images,
Who smoothed the edges that fragmented,
Keeping safe from the sharpness
That slices this life open
Spilling sweat and oil
Buffing in once more
Giving a glistening hue
As rains falls beading
And sliding soundlessly down
Like a river through the path
Of mortar.

I dreamt last night of cobblestone streets and for some reason the image refused to fade even hours later….and so this piece from a bumpy mind this fine cool morning.

  1. Thanks Sue….they are awfully tough to walk on….have almost broken an ankle in the past on them….tread lightly and hop on the sidewalk if all else fails😀 peace and blessings to you also, K

  2. Lovely imagery within this poem.. And those cobblestone streets have lasted much longer than some of our newly laid down roads. 🙂 May the road you travel upon always take you to your desires and may it always be smooth . Love and Blessings Sue
