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.

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

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
