The Spirit Road

The Spirit Road

© 2009 Rolland G. Smith

Some roads are traveled less as I once read,

But in my youth I did not understand

That roads need not be paved for rides or tread.

It takes an ageing life to know paths grand.

Within life’s choice of ways are trails too

To let us stand aside, bestride, our walk,

And trust the wonder that each step’s a school

To learn the truth that life is: walk the talk.

The forks are there at every bend and shade

For us to choose and take an unknown way,

Or not! And if the wild choice is made

We hope the consequence will not betray

The knowing from within our spirit mind

And leave our soul’s advancement way behind.
