"And now the mad carousel stops / The beautiful carousel drops / Me hard on the ground and I look around"

Transcendental Sonnet #1277:

A Thousand Days


the beautiful carousel


A thousand days of up and down and lose and win

Not at all certain where I have just arrived

I have the feeling that I have just survived

A thousand days around and round and spin spin spin


And now the mad carousel stops

The beautiful carousel drops

Me hard on the ground and I look around


What an experience!  What a trip!

A thousand spellbound days in the grip

Of the unknown I will never know again


What just happened to me?  Was it not glorious?

What is reality?  Who is victorious?

A thousand days of searing joy and sadness

An everlasting ecstasy of madness

Beautiful write, Stevie. Life can be a carousel, running at a whirlwind's pace at times. Be well, my friend.
Reviewed by Dave Harm 2/1/2005
The carousel ride just keeps going and going and going...
A ride where no one wins and no one loses...
It brings us back to reality...
But it leaves us with memories...
Reviewed by Pier Tyler 2/1/2005
I know a little bit about trips...I like these lines...
(What an experience! What a trip!
A thousand spellbound days in the grip
Of the unknown I will never know again)

Great write you have here!
Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader) 2/1/2005
Beautiful Steve you continue to write so well and then the carousel will start again in your memory.
