The Road We Choose by Prabha

 

The Road We Choose

The road stretches out for miles,

you only see as far as your eyes allow

This is more than enough.

The rest beyond this is to be seen another day,

there isn’t a rush

Yet the mind can’t resist creating desire,

drama and dreams beyond what we can see.

Hurrying at first,

wanting to get to your destination,

or anywhere away from here

Not realising right then,

how lucky you are to just be able to start out.

Whether that’s in a car or on foot.

Not sure what’s worse; is it the rushing by and not

really noticing everything that you pass or

everything that swiftly passes by you as you walk?

We never really know how anyone experiences the road

only how they behave on it.

In the early years on foot,

there’s only so far you can go before you get tired

and return back down, well, for some

Sometimes you’re convinced there’s nothing past what you can see,

for you, and come to an acceptance not to keep going

or set up a house where you stand.

But, for others, they must keep going as far as their feet can carry them

or the gas runs out.

Either way, you meet other explorers on foot or wheels,

who share the same aim to get further down the road to get away or grow.

Some experienced wanderers or travellers appreciate the value of this trek

and will continue alone or in silent retreat.

As you rack up the miles with company or alone you take a long look

or a glimpse back and realise how far you’ve come.

Poetics describes a whole range of engagements with life that are storied, reflective and filled with imagination and inspiration, as opposed to analysis in the strict sense. When science rules, the magic fades. When thinking ascends the throne, the soul may atrophy. Yet poetics is not irrational – it is a take which reaches into a different aspect of our humanity – one where we can celebrate that which moves us, not dwell on what limits us. Expect surprises. One or many may lead. None or a few may follow and then decide to take the lead. This is a fluidity to break the mould of rigidity. Join us on this journey. Let us hold hands boldly and join voices transformatively. Prabha will be leading us. Feel free to join us.
