Carousel

Still we go round, pursuing what we cannot find.
From dawn to dusk the carnival sound
Embedded in the daily grind -
Still we go round.

Just out of reach - and can't be found.
Perpetual in its design,
Yet we ride, not gaining ground,
A self restricted mind confined.

No risk to guess where we are bound.
The destiny of all mankind -
Still we go round.


Craig Cornish August 3, 2013 for Nette Onclaud's Roundel Contest

    If this poem is not circular, I do not happen to know what is. I could practically feel myself spinning about as I read these fabulous verses.

    Definitely a carousel Our life cycle is..Not knowing when those lights would start to go off and when time comes for the next generation to replace us and take the same ride on this colourful..beautiful but at times too noisy and overcrowded routined life.An excellent piece Craig.

    Stunning write and so realistic.. The 'circle of life' in a playground of perpetual not gaining ground.

    A perfect subject for the Roundel form. In Australia we called them Merry-Go-Rounds. Hope your Sunday is relaxing. SuZ
