Obstacle

illustration of stick person crossing over chasmObstacle
– Hope Bakker

beyond the mountains and streams
through the portal of decades
a path has come to a chasm

stay or cross?

standing at the edge
a teetering of decision resounds
muffling the volley of emotion
to dissuade pursuit

stay or cross?

savor the moment
seeing clearly the choices
the quandary is silenced, ideas ignite
let go and take flight

cross the divide
wind under the wings
perspective granted by distance
a new path has begun
