>’The road’ we write poems #24 crossroads

>I have reached a crucial intersection
I call mine
Time has been a friend to me
It’s all I own
The sadness we perceive, can always change
Enjoying familiar faces

Seems sometimes I have nothing new to say,
it becomes camouflaged
I follow the itinerary of this road, crossroads form,
which way to turn
As the creases are left, never right, ahead lies the destruction,
have I gone too far?

We place sparrows in the sunsets and watch as they fly
While happiness and sadness run streams — paralleled
You have everything that is needed,
before you make a wrong turn,
blue jays … circle
Listen to the crows sing their song …

  2. >"happiness and sadness run streams — paralleled" is life!

  3. >Pamela, there are so many thoughts in this poem, and an undercurrent of sadness."Seems sometimes I have nothing new to say,it becomes camouflaged" – on occasion I have felt that way, and then amazingly, a unique twist occurs. And it is true one only owns time, and then…for how long.

  4. >Pamela, I like this poem. The feelings come through clearly and they are the ones of the crossroad experience. I agree that we only own time, and our choices are most often aimed at how to fill that time, I like that you filled yours with birds and their colors.Elizabeth
