Sorry - I think that comment went awry! Spooky and haunting itself, was what I was trying to say.
(: very true. and it doesn't seem to matter whether we made the right choice or not. i mean, how to know for sure.
Choices are never easy and hopefully less will haunt you more will ease your way.
I agree with Andreas -- we'll never know, for sure, if we should have gone the other way or not. My take on the prompt was the same sort of thing.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
So few words but a whole tale of meaning. You captured it all.
Choices...they will make or break us....and there everyday of our life...nice take Kathe..bkm
A very profound poem. Loved it.
Ah, the road not taken! Always haunting..well done!!
All directions are taken with a purpose to get you to today. Never regret those choices, as they are lessons opened up for us to learn from.
Choices never easy to know if it was the right one or not.
Reminds me of the Don McLean song "Crossroads".Hopefully not too many hauntings
Choices, choices...we can't get away from them.
As one who's been lost in the mountains on a snowy day, I can tell you that your simple verse struck a haunting chord! Beautiful!!!
Oh, yes! Isn't that the way. Love this.
I always feel this way in IKEA. Good haiku.
What was Lucy Westenra doing in Ikea anyway, where every choice is the wrong one? (Apologies to Ikea).Kathe, Diddums! You can't go back... but you can't stop kicking yourself either. Have a drink and change the subject. Double scotch?
You caught the mind's true dilema very well.
Absolutely true, we just need to keep on the road we choose!
I feel that way a lot! You can only do the best you can with the info you have at the time!
If you think about it, all of life consists of choices. Major and minor. Short but succinct. Good one.
Haunting words...zeroing into the arrow
This was one of my favorite Magpies, because or in spite of its similicity and brevity.Many of our choices haunt us...
Life is so much easier when it comes with directions!
I can relate to that one....your words ring true and familiar...love this Kathe! :-)
So so so true!! The effects of our decisions sure last for a lifetime!! VERY WELL written, my friend... succinct and simply perfect!A WOW take on the mag!Here is mine (just in case)
wise words.well put.
I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
