“The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind.”
Good morning, WWP poets. My name is Pamela Sayers and I’m honoured to be here. I’ve been generously invited to provide you with prompts for this month – this lovely month of seasonal change, and I welcome it.
Today I’m going to ask you to write about “roads”. Using myself as an example: twelve years ago, my husband and I made a decision to move South of the Border. We packed a few belongings and started on an adventure. I have no regrets, though there were times I thought: “Oh, what have I done?” Ultimately, most days here are a treasure because there is always something to make me think, and make me smile, if not on the outside, surely on the inside.
So this is your prompt, dear poets: Write about the “roads” we take in life and where they
lead us, or the turns we take that make us wonder about the whys, wheres and hows of our decisions.
A big thank you to Neil and Irene for this opportunity. I’m excited to see what everyone writes.
