Saint Ananda

There is hope only

half way up the rise

Wickedly rugged at times

faith in the eventuality of smooth

Other paths unchosen seem to veer

in undesirable directions

from this vantagepoint

Cresting the peak





for my chosen path has led to

betterment than the divergent


Thorny brush to the left

Craggy drop off to the east

There is hope only

until the top is crested

Red breasted

robin cries

nearly in flight

There is hope only

until I can see

from the top

how the wayward

of all paths forsaken

Meet my feet



all that diverge


Destined unity.
