As the Wheel Turns

Holiday Poem

There are days when life feels like a haze.

Motions are gone through as any other day.

Deep inside, as I wade the tide,

I wish for rest, I wish for peace.

If only life would abide.

Christmas time is here,

a merry time of year.

Good tidings to all,

may prosperity and joy come to call.

We contemplate the new year not with dread,

but with anticipation of what lies ahead.

We may experience sorrow and laughter,

learning and struggle.

But all together,

we look back on each other,

and see how we have grown.

As human beings,

as people of the world,

with hearts full of goodness and love for one another.

No matter what the plight,

what the trouble,

when it comes right down to it,

in times of need,

we’re here for each other.

We bring in the New Year with song and joy.

The great wheel of life continues to turn,

and then another.

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to all!

Writing is my source of peace. I write short stories: memoirs, fiction, and on matters of the soul.

Writing could have been a career for me but I let it slip away. It’s never too late to start again. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
