Infinite Wheel--By Gerald Heyder--United States

Infinite Wheel

Poetry is an infinite wheel
with each poet a spoke thereof.
We put heart and soul on paper
with feelings from heartache to love.
Each poem is a jig-saw piece
that comes from deep within.
We admit to all our mistakes
and often confess our sins.
Poetry is life’s puzzle
that may often be repeated.
We just can’t help but wonder
if the puzzle will ever be completed?

Gerald Heyder is a published poet from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


  1. Brilliant poem, I enjoyed reading it this evening.

  2. A really wonderful write Gerald. Truly our lives are like puzzles being put together. The missing puzzle piece in many lives is love, not selfish love (thinking only of what I want), but unselfish and unconditional love, (the pure love of Christ; Charity) that thinks of others first. Charity is what brings the greatest meaning and joy into ones life. Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem.


  3. Gerald,
    A great poem! A great metaphor for life and poetry!

  4. Thank you, everyone, for your kind words for Gerald. I agree that this is a wonderful poem. I will send him your comments. Thank you, Gerald, for sharing your gift of words and for your ongoing support. So great to have you a part of Whispers.
