NaPoWriMo : Day 2 (The Road Not Taken)


Poetry Prompt: In the world of well-known poems, maybe there’s no gem quite so hoary as Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about your own road not taken.

Do you believe in the multiverse theory? It can boggle the mind to think about.

Next Steps

Every decision creates

A multitude of paths left behind





Turn around to see

The way that made you be

The path quickly disappears

As the past grows up behind

Blocking reversal

The way ahead 

Can’t see beyond another fork

Left or Right?

I will be posting my poems here: I hope you will drop by!
