Along life’s path
we cobble together experiences,
lessons learned, loves lost
and found.

Some leave no stone unturned
in their search for meaning.

Others piece their stones together
along an uneven trail,
and do not mind when
moss gathers to fill in the gaps.

    I think I would travel an uneven path and not mind the moss filling in the gaps.
