ON GRAVEL
The bedrock of life
Is not a smooth surface
Many times are rocky,
Walking is careful
To avoid turning
An ankle on a misstep
Where broken rock trips
Souls toward disaster;
Measuring always
Scenery surrounding
Wild, whether country,
Or anxious cityscape
Where many soles
Travel the pavement.
Business beating all
A heart-swelling rhythm
Jockeying for eminence
Stealing copious hours
To lend – swiftly recovered
Dollars for delicate breath
No chance to dance
Over gravel for haste,
Life’s chase consuming pace.
