Today’s prompt – Direction


Wherever I go

I am going somewhere;

I am going some direction;

some how.

Sometimes I happen upon a direction by chance (?).

Like in a library when a title catches my eye,

or when I turn a corner ‘just because’

I want to see down this street.

I don’t understand these random choices.

Sometimes it is a very deliberate choice.

I want to read that book!

I have to get there now!

I have purpose and determination and direction.

Neither option is bad or wrong.

Both options have a place in my life.

My life has taken me many directions,

Up mountains,

up paths broad and clear

up paths  hard and rough,

up paths the way was so faint i

t was hard to believe it was even a way,

But oh the view from the top!

Through valleys of dark shadows,

cold shadows,

fearful shadows,

even the shadow of death,

but I have never had to walk there alone.

I have even walked beside the still waters.

I have walked up to a table prepared.

My cup has run over.

I am amazed .  .  .  .  .  .


Psalms 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,

and a light unto my feet.

  1. This is lovely, and you inspired a haiku; I hope you like it.

    To find your summer
    follow God’s boot-prints
    in the freshly-fallen snow.
