Halfway House

Measuring steps on my four-mile daily walk,
this house, halfway from and to home,
reminds me today of my childhood home,
or one for the homeless, pilgrims, soldiers,
all trying to find their way back. 


The Trail Ahead


I wish my life was marked clearly

like the blue trail I walked today.

Trees blazed, telling me when to turn,

alternative paths. That the end is here.

I’m avoiding side trails. I am lost.
