Path



on a path laden with stars
and a bag of honeyed kisses
you set forth on a journey
of hits and misty misses

a few tricks up your sleeve
to face the tasks at hand
this path throws you surprises
you now have to take a stand

that's how you grow, that's how you run
in flowery bush and thorny hedge
time to don the student's cap
this path is one learning stage


This poem is shared with Poetry Jam - Path.

  3. the dream image in the first line is wonderful..so are the images of success and failure..a lovely sketch of the symbolic path where we are lifelong learners with our bitter-sweet experiences...so well written Amrit...thanks for participating :)

  4. that's how you grow, that's how you run

    One is not through with improving oneself. There is always something to learn! Great lines Amrit!

  5. I love this Amrit. Yes, life's path will always throw us surprises...it's how we react to them that determines our course.

  7. Amrit, nice to see you this week in Poetry Jam! So true, it is the surprises that test a person really and help them grow. If the path has no bumps or branches, life, in the end, can be pretty dull as well (I think).

  8. As path continues to go
    we continue to grow,
    surprise at every turn...
    as you say--we learn!

    (Hopefully--grin!)

    Nice work, Amrit.....

  10. The path, then the road, then the sky. Then a chair in front of the TV.
