Which Way?

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Quadrille #120
(aka #119, part 2) - No way.  Way!

"Way" feels active to me, whether it is a path that is traveled on, something you travel to, or that you bring up close. It can be a template to follow, a style to be adopted or an opportunity that increases one’s options. Whether it’s a universal template or an individual’s choices and behaviors, the dots are plotted on a map; or maybe it’s just a faint sound of trickling water heard just beyond the trees."

 I am a way’s away.
 Search for the right way
 to my location by following 
 a yellow brick road, or 
 a secret path by way of
 a rabbit hole.  Choose
 either way, and you will
 find me, and experience
 a fantasy, somewhere
 far away.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Boxed in as we are these days, fantasy is the only way it seems!
