The Seeker
by Myra Dutton

At first we think
the path to wisdom
is tedious
as if we were rolling
the planet uphill.
But what we find
is that Mother Earth
is capable of anything
as she spins us
on a potter’s wheel.

PAINTING: Circular Forms by Robert Delaunay (1930).

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: “The Seeker” was written on one of my many walks through the national forest that surrounds the mountain town where I live.
