My Life Moves Forward By Dorothy Walters

My Life Moves Forward
“My Live Moves Forward in Ever Widening Circles”
Rilke
My life moves forward
in a spiral,
now ascending
seeking its star,
now circling earthward
to regions unknown.
Like a funnel of water
crossing the sea
it flows upward and again descends.
Yet always moving ahead,
ongoing progression of minutes
like a hawk rounding the heavens
before a swift plummeting downward
to seize its target
and claim it as its own.
When will I spiral upward
into final vastness,
unravel the message
in the clouds,
find the one who awaits
to seize me in joy?
