Path To You

If only the alluring butterflies led me the right way,  If only the ravishing flowers showed me the idyllic path,  If I fathomed what the blinking stars were trying to tell me,  If there were not many uneven pebbles in the meandering  stream I was following,  I would come back to you in an instant!  May be you were immersed in puzzling thoughts of uncertainty,  May be you were worried I would be lost in the complex maze of the world,  Perhaps you sent your adoring messages with silvery clouds which floated away.  I would not be hindered by any daunting hurdles, believe me, my love,  I would find my path to you!  Sometimes life is menacingly gloomy, dark clouds cover the unilluminated sky,  Sometimes it rains relentlessly, our eyes indistinctly mystified.  Oh my beloved, trust me, trust my unwavering love,  I would not lose my way even in the fiercest of darkness, My path would not drift away from yours, I would unmistakably return to you.  August 3, 2020 Second Place If Only, May Be, Sometimes Poetry Contest Sponsor: Silent One

Congratulations Mala! We both got the requirements right! I love your integration of "maybe's" with your beautiful nature images. Your poem perfectly expresses the pacing heart - ruminating. Really enjoyed the flow from one "if only" to the next.

The "what ifs" of life do linger for a long time. They make for great poetry, as you have demonstrated, Mala! Best wishes in the contest, my friend ~ John
