around the bend

What are you searching for? We are all looking for something: love,  fame, a change, meaning to life.  Don’t lose yourself as you are searching. Some of us do and then frantically have to find our way back. If you are a writer, express yourself and keep it fresh. If you are a painter, give yourself to the canvas. An athlete, put your heart and soul into the training. For every challenge keep aiming toward the finish line.

Simply put: search but don’t get lost!!!!

Looking for the start

path hasn’t been used in years

so many endings

I created a haibun from my very first wordpress blog post  Six years ago today! Not much has changed – I like so many are still searching. If anything, the answers are more clouded and frayed. And thank you to dear friends (you know who you are) – you have kept me inspired when giving up looked like the only option.

“Seek the LORD, All you humble of the earth Who have carried out His ordinances; Seek righteousness, seek humility Perhaps you will be hidden In the day of the LORD’S anger.”      ~ Zephaniah 2:3


Out of Time

Who can tell me where it is?

Where is that place that I should be?

Is it a real place?

A dwelling

or is it a state of mind?


Where am I supposed to go

to find what I am searching for?

It seems I have been looking

my entire life

Where are the answers?


Do you know?

will you show me the direction?

Is there some sort of  map?

A directional?

It seems I am going in circles

finding nothing


Going but never getting anywhere

Futility at best

Will I be out of time

before I discover

my place?
