The Maze Race – — https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

I never thought that an old photo of a pre halloween fun day with my high schoolmates in california would make me smile and wonder.

The excitement of being a child again playing the maze race.

The confusion where to go and who to follow.
The whisperings that i seldom hear
when i’m too busy searching for the signs.

The distractions when i sometime stop
staring at that huge orange pumpkin
wondering why it’s only hugely appreciated
during halloweens.

I do get lost sometimes
not because i don’t read the signs,
not because i don’t listen and see,

Yes, i do get lost
when my eyes are widely open
when the road is too clear
and the sky is too bright

because when you think
that everything is all right
you seldom find a way.

And most of the time
it is only when the doors are all closed
that i noticed the windows.

**Photo was taken while visiting my high schoolmates in California. They brought me to  Dell’Osso Family Farm  in Tracy for a wonderful game of racing through the biggest corn maze in the United States. I lost in the race but win priceless memories of bonding with my classmates and their kids. How time flies.

    I like add something that you taught me today: “One is never truly lost Every road leads somewhere” That’s why you notice the windows 🙂

    You ALWAYS write beautifully! 🙂
