The Road (FPFS : Day Three)



Lost and found in Kodaikanal : By me
Top Post on IndiBlogger


Standing on that bifurcation, I was lost and confused
Wondering where to go from here and which path should I choose

Both were densely lined by trees, seemed similar in their view
But I was game for exploration and carved for something new

To 'the road not taken' I must go, my heart was telling so
Or should I wait for you to come and solve the matter Lo!

I chose the one with dirt and dust, went with aplomb, felt gay 
Well, I never had any patience for life's humbug monotonous song anyway..

The road was long, unknown and curved, treacherous and unseen
 I found a brook, new friends in winds 'twas not glum but serene

And there I found Him conversing, in that calm and solitude
In moments so still, in roads not taken, I found Life's beatitude.



I have been tagged by my soul-sis Maniparna to take part in Five photos Five stories Challenge (FPFS) which is- Post a picture for 5 consecutive days and attach a post to it , fiction, poem or short write-up.It can be anything to suit your taste.
I am tagging Roohi on my Day three and as a part of the challenge, I will tag a new person on Day four.

  1. "To the road not taken I must go
    Instincts were telling so" ... a clear image has been produced before the eyes...I can actually visualize the shadowy paths..inviting me to explore the mystery ahead... Lovely lines dear...:-)

    And, I just love this sweeeeet pic... :-)

    1. He He ... glad you liked the words and this peeping girl with strange expressions. She was actually puzzled on how to stand still as the terrain was deceptively slippery because of the carpet of pine needles! Lots of love to you for tagging me again :)

  2. Beautifully written Kokila. My fav is 'At times I found Him conversing in that calm and solitude'.
    So true. Sometimes, in unexpected places you feel His existence.
    Life wouldn't be fun if we don't deviate and take the road not taken.
    Love you Kokila. :-) This is such a lovely poem.

  8. Beautiful, Kokila. This poem is as wonderful as "The road not taken" By Robert Frost, one of my favourite poems of all times.
    "And there I found Him conversing, in that calm and solitude
    In moments so still, in roads not taken, I found Life's beatitude." Love the lines!
    It is a treat to read your poems.And a cute picture too. :)
