My Poetic Path

….that we make. 

A very wise person must have written that line.

                                             

Our choices define us.

Give a framework to the future.

And sometimes, close the door on people and things,

best forgotten and left behind.

                            

Life is full of choices.

       A series and connection.      

We cast our net.

We take our chances.

                           

Life’s potential grinds to a halt without our:

 good/so-so/better late than never/sometimes downright bad

 choices.

                                

Pick one and go for it!!!

 Happy Fall everyone!

 My photo “choice” for this post is to celebrate the return of my favorite season. 🙂

  1. Yes, rings true for me as well, Geraldine!

    Awesome words! And this is something that could be everyday, just as a reminder.

    Lovely photo! I can’t wait until the leaves here start changing 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Beautiful and beautifully honest, Geraldine.

  3. Love the photo, so colorful. And so true, we are the choices that we make. And choices are important to make, good or not so good.

  4. Right now I don’t feel I have many choices… but it will pass. I am optimistic!

    I am in the hospital waiting room with my Joe, we’re waiting for a bed to be made up for him.

  5. Hi Ron, Yes, I agree Ron, a good reminder every day. Glad you enjoyed this post! 🙂

    Hi Kim, Thanks for your kind words.

    Hi Joe, We do need to take chances, make choices…to go forward and not stagnate. We may not make the right ones all the time (who does!!) but at least we made them. 😉

    Hi Val, That’s not a good feeling. I’ve been there, in very different circumstances but I can relate anyways. Take care.

    Happy Weekend to All, G
