  • Waystops

    We live our lives moving through a
    series of moments of almosts
    Every time we feel we’re there
    there shifts and we have to restart
    What we do reach are just waystops
    where we rest and recuperate
    gathering strength to start again
    At least we have these times to be

    Be glad of the carrot
    almost reached,
    lest the stick
    begins to preach

      But reach the carrot
      and gain a rest
      until another carrot is hung

      Thanks, Johntee!

      Thanks, AtL! Yes, because to go go go will get you there sooner, but you miss a lot along the way.

      Thanks, Tanner! This came from a comment I had made on one of your poems that I used as the last line here. I heard the idea of the first two lines someplace, and it fell together.

    Hello Muttado, To unyoke the weariness of life's travails at such waystops is like a good stretch in the morning, a smooch with a loved one before a fine breakfast. You write with the ease of a well rested sage, chilling out in wisdom. Excellent! Fond regards, Tony.

      Thanks, Tony! I wish I could say I was well rested. But a good stretch and a smooch are a great way to restart.

    Like RhymeLovingWriter I like to just be - perhaps I'm taking too many waystops but I certainly have learned to enjoy the moment more - valuable thoughts on which to reflect so thank you for sharing.

      Thanks, Rhymin! Unfortunately life doesn’t stop rolling along, so we have to restart to try and keep up.
