He Spins His Wheels


He spins his wheels in sinking sand,

getting nowhere fast;

he wonders where the hours went,

and why he’s always last.

Directions skewed, momentum clipped,

his focal point in sight –

how will he get to going spot

if he can’t see the light?


We could all use a little light – is yours shining today?

  1. Wow! Great picture and poem combination, Melody! I am really enjoying my visits here. “wonders where the hours went” becomes years before one realizes it…

    HE should have stopped to ask for directions 😉
    I have artificial light shining over me right now. But – for now – this will do.

    Yep, we’ve got to have LIGHT. Funny thing (well, not really funny) about time and how quickly it passes “now”–I used to think life would go on forever, and it exhausted/depressed me to contemplate. Now I’m scrambling to do everything I want to, and wondering how another week/month/year just flew by…

    ‘he wonders where the hours went’ – brilliant line… Don’t we all!

    Another great poem, Melody! But I was just wondering…is it dedicated to your husband? Lol!

    This reminds me of “in Your light, we see light.” Thank you for helping us keep going in the right direction! God bless you!
