2010 November PAD- Day 14

PAD, Day 14. The prompt was to write a crossroads poem. My favorite crossroad poem of all time is “The Road Not Taken”, by Robert Frost, and with that in mind, I composed the following triolet:

At a Crossroads

Two roads beckoned to me one day,
one heading east, and the other west.
While I stood and watched tree branches sway,
two roads beckoned to me one day.
How long I stood there, I cannot say,
unable to decide which one was best.
Two roads beckoned to me one day,
one heading east, and the other west.


(In real life, I of course opted to head west, and here I still am, decades later!)
