around the world

the world and I
are round you know

we spin
each
in our peregrinations

we
so like a ball
but
only I rebound
should I …
when I
fall

when I stumble

the world
turns on
once in a while
to gaze at me

briefly

then she turns away
so sure
upon her destined path

while I
rebound
resiliently

Poem #460 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
