A pathway in suburban Riverside County, California.

A path of mere human invention
May somehow defy all convention.
Imagine the creechas,
Mice, spydas, and leeches,
That follow the path with intention!

  1. Yikes! I’d rather not!

  2. Following the path with intention – something we humans would do well to emulate.

    When I see a path like this i think more about chiggers and ticks, lizards and snakes, and a mouse or two.

      You certainly think of annoying things! 🙂

        You did frame the sky most beautifully. The only annoying things I mentioned were chiggers and ticks. I think that is because I am sitting here with a few chigger bites. Happy Solstice, enjoy the long day.

  4. I am imagining! I imagine some even avoid the path.

  5. Come on you people, they are all God’s creatures with a purpose…and don’t mock leeches they have a very useful job sucking blood, cleaning wounds and getting the blood flowing again.

  6. A fun and creative poem, and I like the photo. Looks like a nice trail to explore!

  7. I love it, as there is a mystery beyond that path. We are invited to go yet we are hesitant to take the risk immediately.

  8. Lovely photo and enjoyable read.
