Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Going Along for the Ride

Yesterday, I saw a little boy all alone -

The only rider on a Carousel.

His parents were busy

‘important’ grown up talk...

They occasionally sent the boy and horse a tiny wave.

With no one to share with,

The boy was just going round and round on a plaster horse.

He and the horse both looked so sad...simply waiting for the ride to be over

...... round and round...........

Ah….but a friend would have brought the horse to life

And the music would have filled the hearts of horse and rider both.

And the ride would have been magical.

I really don't think anyone should have to ride the Carousel alone,

Do you?

Carousels like life, should happen with others

To share the laughs, and the beautiful music,

and to race alongside each other

Even if it sometimes feels as though you are going in circles.

Today, I wish you a beautiful ride upon your Carousel

with friends, and love and laughter

And if you see someone alone on their carousel,

Hop on for the ride.... at least for a while

Because no one should have to ride the carousel alone...

And that’s poetiquejustis
