Possibilities Infinite

It was his path of spontaneous creation and crushing doom

A way that had for passengers the siblings, hope and despair

This was the trail where blazing light merged into fearful gloom

Imparting the quintessential lessons of life, whether bitter or fair.

 

On many days he had walked holding her hands with a spirit unshackled

While on other days he was the solitary reaper, walking towards a destination unknown

The woods had reverberated with their laughter, so pure and unburdened

The trees now bear testimony to his screams of pain which in intensity have grown.

 

The whispering wind carries with it a treasure trove of tales so tantalizing to parse

The beaten tracks hide within their ruts the power of a thousand possibilities and myths;

Trees gnarled and twisted under whose shade he lay with her counting the shiny stars

He still continues stumble along the path and its widths.

Fantastic imagery here. And I love how you’ve echoed the photo’s stark contrast with your own contrasting pairs.

Happened to browse through your splendid website and stumbled across a candid Proust Questionnaire. Coincidentally I also had taken a stab at this, bolstered by a swig (or two) of Scotch! Here goes the outcome. Pardon the disappearance of the pictures due to some inexplicable vagaries of technology! https://blogternator.com/2018/06/11/the-proust-questionnaire-a-personal-effort/
