Muddling Along ~ quadrille

Muddling Along

This course I follow, this path
that would have one ultimate destination,
one kept from me till my final day,
has had no direct route. It has gone
in circles, from here to there and sometimes
back, as I bumble my way through life.

This is my response to Quadrille #110: Shall we bum around a bit?, the prompt from De Jackson at dVerse Poets Pub, which is to use a form of the word bum in a 44-word poem, with no required meter or rhyme.

  1. Iโ€™m a bit of a bumbler too. I like the sound of the word โ€˜bumbleโ€™, it kind of hums. I have always thought that Mr Bumble was much too nice a name for the Dickens character โ€“ he was mean to Oliver Twist.

  2. There is some profound introspection and philosophy on and between the lines. I tend to embrace the Zen POV, that though difficult to do, or to understand, our life path is far from happenstance, and our bumbling is just a product of our human nature.
