Two Views Of Same Path – Haibun Poem

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Tuesday Challenge

Challenge: Using synonyms for Plenty & Meander write a poem choosing 1 of 5 forms of poetry: Haiku, Tanka, Haibun, Cinquain, or Senryu.

Plenty – many, sufficient, opulence.

Meander – (of river or road) wind, twist, turn, curve.

(of a person) stroll, saunter, amble, wander.

Two Views Of Same Path

As I gaze intently upon the two roads with many hues, I find myself with a deep yearning to stroll down the way into nature’s opulence of peace. Although there is another path of peace indwelling my heart, I tire of the noise of the city. Both hold the precious brilliance of Creation…

oh the many hues
which road shall I choose to walk
two views of same path

there is no need to choose for I can walk down both roads in the stillness from whence I write.

The Beauty Of The Rugged Autumn Bridge

Autumn River

Autumn in all its splendor with vibrant hues of greens, burnt oranges, reds, and browns. The glory of God’s beauty to behold. But in the midst of all this beauty, a rugged bridge of growth filled with painful, stumbling steps with a promise of a stairway to heaven…

some will cross this bridge
and reach the heavenly heights
yet others will sleep

For the only way to soar is the path of the rugged bridge that builds spiritual strength, stamina, and faith in a Greater Power than one’s self.
