Maps Don’t Always Know Everything
I 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
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.

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.
Discovered in a neighbor’s driveway when I took a different way home
Who knows which way you’ll go in the Magic Gratitude Gypsy Trailer…
South of the Boarder? La Paz? Your Garden?
the only tomatoes that will grow in my shady cool Albany Garden
or Annie’s Annuals The Best and Biggest purveyor of plants. Go Here to see her catalog
On the First Day of Spring I took off for an adventure to Annie’s followed by lunch at La Paz Papuseria both in the industrial part of Richmond CA. I came home full and nurtured!
Where are you going for Spring Break?
