Roads

I do not hold grains of sand
Time trickles through my fingers
Just as it always has

Nor can I unchain these
Mysteries presented
Clandestine they remain

Rainbow colors
Out of gamut of vision
Are as invisible to me as you

What strengths do you wish upon me?
Iím just like you, finding my way
Lost sometimes, like now

A message replicates in my mind
Its beacon signal beckoning
Incessant musical scores

Strange new avenues at every turn
Every corner transforming
Nameless native lands

Tow, tug of tomorrow
Gravitational magnetizing
Planetary providence

While you turn inwards
A secret box with no sides
No openings at all

Expecting me to find you

You don't sound lost to me? Love the last stanza and the imagery. Well done

Corinne,
A question in a question is to much for me. But I did enjoy the poem, well done.

I agree with Isis. Favorite phrase is the last stanza!

------------------
Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?
