The Ferris Wheel Of Life

Rating: 4.3

(A collab write with Kayte, a fellow poet)

We're going to ride the Ferris Wheel of Life
And when it gets to the top,
We'll review each of the blessings we've received.
They never seem to stop!

Round and round we go
never stopping, never wondering
our life's struggle has it's beginning

it will always have it's ending

true, life is a ferris wheel, and it's best to go with the flow, and accept whereever we are are at that time, knowing that change is always possible, and never to take anything for granted....

Dear, an excellent work by all means. The philosophy is very clear and absorbing. You have hit at the right spot. The last stanza stands as the crown of the poem. Perfect language, perfect insight. Man thinks that god is simply sitting behind the clouds. No, he appears before us in every way as you rightly describe. Know for certain that anything that protects our life and lifts our hope and spirit is a case of providence - it can be a book, person, place, a machine, a function of time, our own intuition etc. If we reflect on our life, we can see that there was enough providence working from all corners of the universe in every form. So we need not have any regrets in life. The collaboration work is perfect in every sense. Thanks for sharing this great work.

You really described life as the ferris wheel, like it, it is full of ups and downs, with a message that we should look at life in a very positive way from the side of the blessings we have. Inspiring.

From: Frank James Ryan, Jr. (5/12/2008 1: 01: 00 AM) An apropos parallel drawn in the smbolization of a ferris wheel likened to lifes ever-revolving course....the peaks & valleys...high's & low's...and sometimes we get stranded at the top...and all we can do is wait, til the man in charge, brings us down to safegrounds....Excellent penning & a belated, but Happy Mother's Day to you, Meggie! You caught me visiting tonight, as unfortunately, once again, i have decided to retire the pen....business beckons my unwavered efforts...and literature, [so it appears, for me, at least]....is not not going to cover any bills! I will visit soon again, and i have left 100 select poems on site for whomever, whenever. You take care, young lady. ~ FjR ~
