Many paths

Which way to go?
I wonder which path I should take?
Which way to go?
The great silent trees do not know
What difference each path could make –
Love, joy, sadness, riches, heartache –
Which way to go?

 

Last year I did a regular poetry challenge offered by Jane Dougherty. She encouraged us to try out different forms. This is a rondelet, a very formal structure, which lilts along. I always feel they should be set to music. This rondelet is actually for the dVerse poetics link. Mish offers a series of paintings by Canadian artist Ally Saunders to inspire our pens. If you like this painting, you can find more of her work on http://allyart.ca/. If you want more poetry, go to dVerse, or check out Jane’s site – great poems and amazing stories.
