Dance the Circle of Life

Dance the circle of life:
A spiral ever down or ever up-
Yours the choice to make,
Yours to learn from mistakes.
Ever moving on that curling path,
Ever flowing from birth to epitaph.

Dance the circle of life:
Spiralling ever and on
To the grave – a seed from
Which all was first born.
How many days, how many lessons?
Will you be taught ‘til the grave beckons?

Dance the circle of life:
To spiral around and again
The Fool to Master you may be,
Or Master to Fool – do you see?
Will you travel up the outward road,
Or ever down, inwards, ‘til your tale is told?

  1. Hi! Thanks for like on my blog!
    What a beautiful deep and meaningful poem!
    Happy New Year!……Paula x

  2. Yes, it is a dance, isn’t it – life!
    Sometimes, my toes get trodden on, though!

  3. I nominate you for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award. Please visit my blog for info :))

  4. Hauntingly lovely, just like the memories of life sometimes.

  5. This poem has a deep, resourceful meaning and a smooth flow. I love the second and third verse especially.

    • Thank you, I was trying to keep it flowing through each verse, the same sentiment but ‘spiralling’ on 🙂
      Glad you like it.
