Toward A Different Stream







I meander a bit

diverging, twisting, and flowing

aimlessly dodging stagnant conventions

dabbling in a little of this and that

never a straight path enticed

nor pondered sinuous cerebrum crevices

like a waterfall, forever flowing

I meander, a persistent crooked stream

through motionless, manmade ponds

escaping raging rivers and confusing channels

toward a different stream

spurting eccentricity

  3. Definitely a more interesting path than the straight and narrow, if at times confusing.

    1. Straight and narrow is easier, but oh, so boring. I think we all new to carve a path unique to our souls.
