Poems: The Wheel of Life

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Article Summary

The wheel of life is an article with two poems, "The Wheel of Life" & "A Piece of Heaven." This was inspired by the weekly word prompt "Life."

The first one is about wanting our dash in life, the time between birth and death, to be good.

The second one is about the magic we see everyday sent by heaven.

The Wheel of Life

The wheel of life turns faster each moment,

pressing her thoughts to complete her goals

before her footsteps walk no more.


Pacing frantically towards the finish line,

her mind erasing mistakes

paving the way for a clearer path.


Knowing all that truly matters is the dash,

those moments in between her birth and death,

keeping it in the forefront of her mind

hoping she leaves a good legacy behind.


She steers clear of anger

attempting to push it to the side,

hoping to show forgiveness like Jesus,

but she falls short.


She tries to make the best of each moment

guiding someone’s hand along the way,

enjoying each second life has to offer

before the sand counts down.

What matters most of all, is how we live our dash

A Piece of Heaven

The moment our day begins,

magical surprises greet us

with echoes of nature leading the way,

as we hear tiny bluebirds sing.


When sunlight sneaks through the windows,

tiny specks of dust sparkle like gold

dancing through the air like a magical illusion.


It’s like a piece of heaven

with our guardian angel standing beside us,

sending us secret clues,

to help us with our journey in life.

Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale.

— Hans Christian Andersen

My 500th Article

Today marks a milestone for me. This is my 500th article on Hubpages.

It's not quite the article I had planned in my mind for this occasion, but in life we roll with the cards.

It's hard to believe these little fingers have tapped so much writing on here already.

Poetry & writing have been a passion of mine for many years, but until I met my Hubber friends I didn't think my work was good enough to showcase to the world.

My Hubber Friends gave me the confidence and support I needed through their many comments and conversations.

This could not have happened without You!

Thank you all for being there for me. I appreciate each and everyone of you.
