The Path

By Corrie

Is this the right path or should I try another?
Did Frost vacillate so much?
The poet’s path less trodden
will not be the same as mine.
But which is mine?
Where does the path unwinding go?
What is there along the way?
There is a place, perhaps,
my anxiety pours into
a secret pool or stream
– remedy the situation
stay in the shade and cool
hear the patter in the branches
in the pattern, sustaining,
and the pathway leading home.
