My lodestar

My lodestar


I have been wandering

Asking God for guidance

Or a mere lodestar

To my future, to my life.


I am guided by my good thoughts

My never ending questions

I write down in my memory.


I pass a signpost

Just over a nook’s corner

Of the passing year.



Indistinct, dusty

But inscribed: TO LIFE.

Thus I dare to live.
