Halcyon

I decided today,

I wouldn’t go the same way.

Was tired of seeing the same old,

Same old.

Wanted to be different.

Wanted to be bold.

 

Found myself on the other side

Of campus. Heels clacking against the ground.

Gentle humming; sweet, sweet sound.

Not a soul around.

 

Yellow, orange, red

Colours of Autumn falling at their own beat.

Rustling upon the street

In quiet vindication.

A story lies ahead.

Innocuous invitation.

But I stop here,

Pause in the atmosphere,

To listen to the tale

beneath my feet.

 

I smile.

Think I’ll stay for a while.

Gentle breeze

and soft crackle in the trees.

 

There are words in places you cannot see

And they come to me.

As they would come to you

If you would choose a route

Different

From the one that you are used to.

 

 

——

Take the road less travelled.
