YOUR UNIQUE HIKE

source


I wish you well
As you select
The road untraveled
By anyone else 
But you
Taking giant steps 
Deeply into mystery's darkness
Tripping on rocks of unknowing
Smiling as you rise from falls
Accepting journey's 
Intricate, unpredictable adventures 
Each moment
A fluid, moving destination



I dedicate this to Brian, to whom I am grateful for encouraging me to write poetry.  
Happy Anniversary to Dverse Poets!

  6. Ah.. the canopied
    road that shows a future..
    a place of hope of roads

    of DArk that

  13. Thanks Myrna. I'm glad someone mentioned Brian. I wish he'd get to writing again soon. Still, he was right. I think it's better to take breaks from time to time. Your poem was a great dedication to him, thanks

  18. Lovely! Each one of us travels a different path, but those intersections where we meet, or those long or brief moments when our paths converge make the journeys so worthwhile!

  19. Every journey has it's ups and downs, but you shouldn't be afraid to take that first step. :)

  20. This seems to fitting as a tribute to Brian. I think there are so many journeys for us to choose from and most of us are capable of taking them. It comes down to choosing one that's meaningful.

  21. Intricate, unpredictable adventures
    Each moment a fluid, moving destination

    That really makes the difference. One makes adjustments all along the way to maintain the semblance of order!
