A path is a way marked out for people to walk and a way of life too. It may be long, short, straight, winding steeply upwards or without any destination. Only we have to be careful about choosing the right one for us.
“Do not go where the path may lead go instead where there is no path and leave a trail…….” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Some paths are clearly marked;
they may be the ones you are searching for.
Others are narrow clearings through
forests, light lingering
on the far side. Dark paths
are unchartered territory,
place where a story may lie
within. While straight roads
lead to garden gates,
if you wait for a winding
trail, who knows, you might
see a white tail, and follow it. You could
be at an entrance to Wonderland.
