Circles

Circles

People living in straight lines
First they live and then they die
Never looking at those circles
As the truth just passes by
Everything goes round and round
Then round, and round, and round again
Yet to folk with eyes closed tightly
All those circles be in vain.

Planets speak of endless circles
As each season comes and goes
Round in circles, always circles
First the morning sun, it glows
It lights the day and then it dies
As it’s swallowed by the sea
Then reborn each early morning
This be the path of destiny

Circles always turning, turning
I have looked and I have found
Circles, they be all around us
In nature things go round, and round
It seems this be a thing worth noting
Watch those circles, they might show
When looked at with a deep awareness
Something that the mystics know

Always put your faith in circles
This be all I have to say
Take a wondrous walk with nature
Learn the truth from day to day
That first you’re here and then you vanish
`Then you’re here then gone again
Let the circles tell their story
When looked at, it be very plain.

Written in 2002

    On another site note... Peter, ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. apoetdestroyer@yahoo.com :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    Your circles are nicely portrayed. A touch of Pythagorian thinking, another touch of oriental philosophy in a handsome, harmonic ballad; I like the poem, and I think that it should enter a contest! 7 G.

    Thank you Sara for your kind comments. I am not educated enough to consider maths very deeply, but it seems to me that it all goes in circles of tens. But it seems to me that if all nature goes in circles then life and death must follow suit...peter
