Just Yet...














When this road branches out
into many little trails
and I'm not quite sure
which one I want to go down
just yet,
I ask that
you don't hurry me on
and tell me
that I must pick one right now
or I will never
keep pace.

For when I reach that point
I may just want to
lay down my burden
under the shade of a mighty oak tree,
spread my mat
upon the wet grass,
and while savoring the wind as it caresses
my weary shoulders,
I may just want
to sit down
and read.

Allow me to
be enraptured by the eternity
of the moment, not worry
that it will
slip
away from my grasp.
For once, let me know
what it's like
to not choose
just yet.

Love it! Well said! A desire much ignored, often trivialised. Thank you for honouring it.

Precious and priceless! You've obviously savoured every word of it, my friend! I read and read and re-read, to slip back into the eternity of the moments I was "experiencing" your poem! Great work, brother! Keep them flowing!

Cheers,
Guru

As much as most of us understand the profundity of our journeys, it does get swept under the rug, for want of reaching the destination... and don't we all need such reminders? :)
