Caught in the Blur

Pointillists paint millions of dots
until one image appears.
Up close blur
becomes meaningful
with three steps back.

Even a merry-go-round stops
lets passengers on and off,
provides a straight steel pole
to ease the way
in its calliope whirl.

Perhaps the answer then
is a palette or a shiny black steed
to guide me through
and make some sense
of this place you call life.

merry go round
