The Obstacle


the stone
the rock
the mountain
the other

     the creator
           of rivers
          of canyons
          of rapids
          of revealing weaknesses
          of scorching language
          of conspiracies
          of inconsistencies
          of the focused mind
          of strategic planning
          of annoyance
          of gnashing of teeth
          of giving up
          of trying again
          of joining together
          of splitting up
          of helping
          of being helped
          of reinventing
          of reinvigorating
          of revitalizing
          of new inventions
          of new vistas
          and new possibilities

               Blessed be the Obstacle
               for only It leads to the

                         Great Overcoming


About dwk758

When I was in the 6th grade, I was fascinated by a brief section in my World History book about ancient Greece and the philosophers, mythology, and original Olympics. I wrote my first poem about it that started: "Ancient Greeks and old time Romans...". Ever since it has been an elaboration on that theme...and I have wandered far afield.
