The Hairpin


You lost a pin last night
one that adorned your hair.

A precious pin.

You fretted and fumed....
Oh dear! The Pain of Loss!

You'll find another pin and then
another....

But the pain will remain
to open out new visions
pf responsibility,
of sense of loss
that reveal
true essence of life's
checkered course.

As you move forward into
dark unfathomed oceans of experience
that twinge of Pain will
be your guide, gathering
strength of more such sufferings
till you finally realize that
gains and losses of things
like a Hairpin are
worth nothing!

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
