Nurturing Ways

Maps Don’t Always Know Everything

DetourI took a long time getting here,
much of it wasted on wrong turns,
back roads riddled by ruts.
I had adventures
I never would have known
if I proceeded as the crow flies.
Super highways are so sure
of where they are going:
they arrive too soon.

A straight line isn’t always
the shortest distance
between two people.
Sometimes I act as though
I’m heading somewhere else
while, imperceptibly,
I narrow the gap between you and me.
I’m not sure I’ll ever
know the right way, but I don’t mind
getting lost now and then.
Maps don’t know everything.

More roads to fallow at Cee’s Which Way Challenge
 
The poem and the prompts all came my way by my inbox this morning.
I hope you find many road signs today as well.
Love to hear about them.
Many Blessings
