Roads

I took the road


Not knowing where it would lead


Trusting it fully


And ready to heed


It took me through woods


Calm and serene


It showed me lakes


And meadows green


At times it welcomed me


With carpets of blossoms white and yellow


Some times the snow on it


Forced my speed to mellow


It admonished me


For hurrying through the sights


Not stopping by the river


That gurgled past least in spite.


It climbed up hills


Arousing my child like curiosity


To know what lay beyond,


A moor or a city


In winter, spring and autumn


It unfolded a new picture


All distinct from each other


But in no way less awesome



The roads prodded me


To move on in life


And not be bogged by


Any sort of strife…..
