Reflections about Life

Carol A. Hand

I walk on my home world

the place of my birth

perhaps just for this life

perhaps only for this incarnation

not knowing where I came from

or where I’ll ultimately go

when I leave this place and a life

that has sometimes felt too long

and other times, so fragile and fleeting

But while I am still here

let my spirit shine its song

Let me walk with peace and beauty

in my heart

as long as it continues beating



This poem was inspired by a comment on my previous post from Maria KethuProfumo at Eternamenta.  I encourage you to visit her thought-provoking blog.

  2. Beautiful as usual…same questions and expectations here, as we approach our transition to whatever comes next, and still so much to do, even if only watch the birds fly in the amazing sky, smell the earth and dream…
