"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.

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
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)
Beautiful Steve you continue to write so well and then the carousel will start again in your memory.
