Poetry either strikes at the first glance, or not at all.-
I sometimes feel that way too!
I love that point where all paths meet. Generally a turning point, hence the anxiety? Always nice to read you, kiddo.
Oh yes! All the anxiety is because I'm at a huge turning point in my life.
If we have to much to chose from we are likely to stay put...
That's the whole crux of the poem :)
If this is your first time writing with us, let me remind you that you should include a link at the end of your poem back to Poets United so when people read they have a link to go back to read another poem. It makes reading more convenient for our group.That said, I like your poem. We are often at the crossroads of life wondering what to do or which way to go.
I'll surely do that from the next time onward. Thanks for reminding me! :)
Everywhere and nowhere- I like that...bkm
...and haven't we all been there at one time or another! Some wise person once said "Be still. God whispers."
Everywhere and nowhere have a lot in common, I think.
Great expression for a situation we all experienced sometime or another in our lives.ZQ
At first, the thought of going "everywhere and nowhere" at the same time conjured images of being turn apart... Then I thought that the same imagery can be describing a place that gives the speaker access to everything and everywhere, but only if she wishes to go and take.
That's an interesting take on it. I'll surely keep that in mind :)
It sounds like the narrator had decisions to make. Life never lets us escape these intersecting paths.
Sometimes to go everywhere is to go nowhere..but maybe that's a good thing!
Spoilt for choice, huh? How paralysing! Suggestion: choose a path! (Grin.)
I am at that point in life where I don't know whether I'm spoilt for choice or spoilt by the lack of it. And choosing a path is a lot tougher than it seems. :( So I thought I'd express the sheer difficulty of it in a poem.
Wonderfully deep and thought-provoking.
This is a very cool juxtaposition of inertia and racing thoughts - so difficult to find one's path in that state of mind. Sounds like a good time to just let life happen for a bit. Smiles.
Vivid metaphor with the kite!
