the point that turned

and when i reached that point
i found no courage to change
and that point reappeared
again, and once again
seemed easier to stay put
but then life had its own plans
graciously, tenderly it diverted
a mild deflection
and i was unaware
did i evolve just a little
but i had done nothing
or, had I?

the world took a turn

on my behalf
looking back
the unfamiliar
did become familiar
like the
absurd lightness of imagination

as hazy as the
inane frivolity of emotion

i never realised it
all i know now is
i will never return
did i turn at that point
or did the point turn me?

My response to Dungeon Prompts The Turning Point, a very challenging prompt for me to express. I may, or probably may not have managed to get my message across.

  1. Good question, and something to think about. Life changes us and we don’t even realize it until we’re looking back and wondering what happened.


  2. Dear Sonya,

    You have a knack for capturing, and releasing for the reader, subtleties. Thank you for once again doing it here.

    All good wishes,



  3. I found the words of your poem very inspiring and would like to thank you for sharing it, beautifully expressed.


I would love to have your thoughts
