Maze of Life

image source here

                                It’s a maze

                       Stubborn paths encircle

                  In a never ending winding way

I have been walking from my birth to carve my path

                  Rest I may but I shall not turn back

                       Dark face has starry smile

                               And day star

  1. I see the joy in the making. This makes me think of being a medieval European--or anywhere--crafts person with one massive door to carve in my entire life. Watching art emerge. I picked the same prompt.

  2. we do create our own path...and often when we come to a turn, we can not see the next, so like a maze we make the best choice and keep moving...

  3. our path is for sure a mystery! we make it on oour own and there are too many possibilities!

  4. actually the fact we cannot turn back moves me most... in reality it's a lonely path.. each of us creating a unique one-

  9. walking your maze… I read somewhere that mazes can actually be added to as far as a solution to getting out of them. I thought that was interesting and "walking" makes me think of forging a new path, if necessary.

  13. Turning back is not an option, stop yes but eventually we must plod on to the end.

  14. It's a challenge to carve one's path as you are always tempted to turn back ~

    I admire the tight form, smiles ~

  15. We all carve our own path I guess. Sometimes it does seem like a maze but fortunately there are times when the sand is fine and the path clear.

  21. Tight, precise, and well married to the image. It is good to know that everyone holds the desire to turn back on occasion,

  24. This is beautiful...life is such a maze it seems a miracle many are able to find their way through it.

  25. Nice, pleasant thoughts, Sumana. If we stop and don't restart
    then our path will be ended where it left off? Must keep going.
