light and shadow

A question for you: If you could go back 20 years ago and change your path, would you do it?

light and shadow
the farce of a moment
going ahead, taking a turn
return to an uncertain past
carving a safe future
depression sight

A butterfly cinquain for Tanka Tuesday.

      1. My pleasure, Elizabeth! 🙂

        BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’ – that’s my first name. The word ‘ben’ in Hebrew simply means ‘son of’, and my father’s name was ‘Alexander’ – I created my blog in his memory.

        It’s confusing because ‘Ben’ is a name in English – I’m really sorry ’bout that!

        Take good care,

  1. Beautiful poem, Elizabeth, and your question is haunting. I’ve had a number of life-changing turns during my journey. I did the best I could at the time, but would I choose differently now? I don’t know. My best at the time might have been all that was needed or possible. I’ll be thinking about this all day! 😊
