Cross Roads

Taken by Daughter

To follow dreams
seen from the centre
of the crossroads

To feel the thrill
of  new learning
and new friends

To look beyond to where
stories might
grace a large screen

To have
the canvas of
a green screen

To unpack the stories
of poem
and lives to be told

To have moments of doubt
and wonder whether
to play it safe

But playing it safe
only leads to a dead

And a dream to make
it back
to the crossroads

The crow and heron
take their positions
in the park

The dreamer
finds optimism
dancing in reflections

Time to fly
down a chosen

No more just hanging
around at
the crossroads

Packing suitcases of knowledge
for futures
never known
(c) June Perkins
