Everly Blooming

Cherry blossoms spring
Showering us with petals
The wagon wheel turns
Arriving then departing
While the static hub sits still

  1. This is an interesting poem, Ben Naga. Spring obviously has two meanings, both of which are appropriate to the first two lines, then the wagon wheel. I take this as a symbol of journeying and time both, arriving and then departing. Obviously the wheel of time as spring showers us with petals is always turning, but…but…”the static hub sits still.” Interesting. There is truth here. The hub in the center of the wheel does sit still, but if the wagon moves it moves. Its center is different than the center of the wheel. This leads to a complex of thoughts, which makes this a complex, but really interesting, poem.

    • Did I tell you that I find you a wonderful man? Not that I don’t find Ethel wonderful also. Expect me chez toi in due course. My life is complex however and also I’ve been away. Please forgive me and persevere. You are not forgotten, or less than honoured.
