What path will you choose today?
light or dark
crooked or straight
sandy or rocky..
When you stand at a crossroad
do you care which one you choose
does it really matter?
I like a path that climbs..leads up,
be it desert or mountain pass
climbing up..higher..higher where
only Eagles fly..and snow clings
Sometimes I like the desert
in the early spring.
Wildflowers bloom then,
water holes are full and animals
visit in early eve.
Once I saw a Jaguar long ago
in New Mexico flowing down a canyon
like a black and orange stream, almost
like a ghost..unreal..wonderful
on a path only he could walk.
Sometimes I walk a path in the city
mostly in the rain..like Seattle
or San Francisco the rain cleans the air
and the streets..when you walk slow
you mostly walk alone others hurry by
seeking shelter..and the sea and sky
are the same color.
What is your path?
