Two Roads Both Traveled: Revolutionary IMprov Free Verse

April 23, 2017

No apologies to Robert Frost

Two roads converged
in the tulip fields,
and I,
remembering it had been years
since I’d last passed
this way,
as a younger,
less curious man;
recognizing I would probably
never pass
this singular way
again;
wondering,
with age,
curious,
yet certain in knowing
how each road would lead
to a different view,
to different light,
to different experience,
to different understanding;
as an older man,
standing on the brink
of my eternities,
now took enough time
to broaden my vistas
as wide as I could.

Two roads converged
in the tulip fields.
I breathed deeply,
faced the setting sun,
cancelled other appointments,
and took them both.

And that will make
all the difference.

Will It Make A Difference? Romantic ConTEXTing Haiku

Lines converge in a museumMany lines converged/
in a museum. I took/
the one less trodden.
OR

the one less walked on.

Upon observing the road taken: a Revolutionary conTEXTing poem

When the Frost/
had melted/
and she noticed/
where she stood,/
focused,
looked back,/
viewed the wood,/
she smiled. Where she was,/
was good.
