light and shadow

light and shadow

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

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

A butterfly cinquain for Tanka Tuesday.

  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! 😊
