Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 47: The Tao of Desire

sculpted desire 

from sculpted 
desire we cling to 
myriad windows - 

no wheel of 
transmigration - rather

life loops, the path, the 
dead ends, 

The Way.

  4. The way as in openness to many vistas and possibilities. I like the perspective.

  5. This tiny poem takes us
    on myriad journeys, touching
    love, the great wheel of life,
    art, sculpture, happiness,
    disappointment, and our many
    journeys. Kudos for the immensity
    of the brevity.
