Just when we forget what journey stands for

Our weary feet might take

Us to a new crossing.

Roads call to make a choice

Not only to rejuvenate,

Excite but also to open a portal within where

You come face to face with yourself.

  1. Isn’t that the most challenging and scary journey of all, getting to know yourself? I like the extra complication you had to make for yourself with the acrostic poetry form! And what a magnificent landscape to illustrate it all.

  2. A lovely acrostic and stunning photo Sumana. I believe the most important journey is coming face to face with oneself. Thanks for joining us in our 5th year celebration.

  3. Well, anytime someone uses the word “rejuvenate” I am with ya! I’m in my rejuvenatement period (never say retirement). Stunning photo — and great words in terms of the choices we face and finding ourselves within our journey.

  4. Excellent poem, amazing acrostic. The photo is quite a contrast to your header. I had to look twice to make sure it wasn’t the same photo after a disaster. But truly, excellent poem.

  5. This is wonderful, Sumana. We really can find ourselves in the midst of our own journeys. I love the twisted acrostic path that lines your poem.

  6. Yes, any journey…whether long or short…is experienced on different levels. Any journey changes a person somehow. We may be rejuvenated, but there can be even a greater change inside…. I like this poem a lot, Sumana, especially after having returned from my own journey.

  7. This is a fine photo for that portal, capturing the difficulty of choice and of continuing at times. Journey wants not to be neglected. Thanks.

  8. Very strong Sumana – the presence of your soul shines through the simplicity of this piece, leaving us precisely where we need to be – with a powerful reminder… Thank you so much… With Best Wishes Scott

Thank You :)
