Crossroads


 Influenced by Steven's marvelous post, I've planned my day:
 



here the road of hurry and rush
here the street of noise
here the way of helter-skelter thought

















here the path of forest and tree
here the hush of clouds
here the way I chose today to walk

Thank you for the link to Steven's blog...what an incredible find for me!

I'm with you on the path you chose today...the peace, the quiet, and the holiness of the deep forest comforts and inspires me.

Pauline said...

Marion - there are times I can't take this path until I've done the noise and bustle one, but during the day I try to make time for a hike out of doors. Steven's blog is consistently beautiful.

Barbara said...

A much safer and more enjoyable choice to be sure! I had my fill of the first earlier today.

So simple... this is the here and now. And so beautiful, Pauline.

Pauline said...

Barbara - there are times when that road cannot be avoided but I try to balance!

Thanks you Ruth - here and now is almost always the best place to be.

Sky said...

Reya Mellicker said...

This is beautiful! And you have here the best of all worlds: some hustle and bustle and some peace and quiet. I salute you!

Hilary said...

Lovely and true. Give me that path any day.

Pauline said...

Thanks, Sky. I do live in a truly beautiful place.

Thanks CGP - good to see you again!

Reya - I avoid the hustle and bustle whenever possible. I am far more rural than that first generic photo would suggest but some days just getting into "town" can feel like that!

Me, too Hilary. I am lucky in that the woods are mere steps away.

Cheated again by blogger! I don't unerderstand why my other reads show up as having a new post, and now, lately , you don't! The menfolk would, of course, say that the computer is only as smart as the person pushing the buttons, and I must have done something!

I like a little hustle and bustle, but my heart is in the trees and the fields! Must pay a visit to Steven's blog.....
