The Twisting & Turning

The wide-eyed child surrendering
To moment’s pleasure ~ unweathered
Behold the wisest rendering
Of earthly beauty and whimsy

Yesterday
I questioned the reasons for the day
I picked out the best and pushed the rest away
The harder I tried to get away
The stronger the reasons were for me to stay

The twisting and turning right back in my face is the learning

I trust it’s all meant to be
Fool’s paradise, not for me
~
Behold the wisest rendering
Of earthly beauty and whimsy

Just today
I question the reasons for the day
I pick out the best and push the rest away
the harder I try to get away
The stronger the reasons are for me to stay

The twisting and turning
The gracing and yearning of loving

Is never far from me
Fool’s paradise, not for me
I’m trusting it’s all meant to be

The twisting and turning
The gracing and yearning of hope

The twisting and turning
The gracing and yearning for peace

The twisting and turning
The gracing and yearning of love

The twisting and turning
The gracing and yearning of life
