Karmic paths

KARMIC PATHS

Rains in
This brittle bridge
Quickening my dead pace,
I am now in a lane where men
Walk in a trance. I am at the soothsayer’s
Predicting  sunny days ahead.
I am now a golden bridge
Where a hopeful
Sun walks.

On my
way back to home
A spindly boy of twelve
A vendor of raffle tickets
Screams. ..having lost some money..which he
Locates under his very foot
At once. I win my prize.
A  fractured world
Is bridged.

Fish waste
Stinks from  dark streets.
If  it’s  all I sense , what
I vividly see is ‘karma’
at work, ever vengeful, scheming, teasing
not leaving anyone for once
however big or small
rich or poor, young
or old.

    Completely true I must say! I seem to find myself wanting to read this over and over- I love it! The fact that you tread so much imagery in this is just amazing and it ties the whole poem together. Incredible!-AddieThornton
