Which road? Which? Which shall I take - or not? The eternal question each of us face, now, time and again. Yogi had the simplest, perhaps the best solution. In his wisdom Yogi Berra said, “If you come to a fork in the road; take it!” There, dusting my hands, problem solved.
Robert Frost, one of my all time favorite everyday poets, wrote “The Road Not Taken.” Hummmmmm? Regret? Should I have? Oh well.
Scott Peck scribed the NY Best Seller, “The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth.” Written decades ago, I think it’s most relevant in today’s confusing world of questionable values and strange definitions of love. And Lord knows the Spiritual nature of the human is oft wanton. Read it.
My “The Road Least Traveled” poem is but a short insight into my Epiphany one day whilst cycling, in the spirit of Frost, but with the straightforward clarity of Yogi.￼
“I took the road familiar,
And traveled ne’er so far,
I took the road least traveled,
And found who am, I are!”
Poetry on My Mind, p43
