An Unbridled Risk

The long, winding road

Lies ahead of me

I can see off in the distance

But not around the bends along the way.

The scenery is inviting

The serene water of the lake

The mountains silhouetted against blue sky

Clouds that foretell no minacious weather

Now an empty road

I wonder, How many have traveled it

And ever twice?

Or were there regrets at the end

And empty promise.


Prompt: a non-rhyming poem (my choice) An ekphrastic, a poem derived from a photograph. This blog does not upload pictures. You must envision it.
