I need a little direction right now—
First of all, I took this photograph yesterday while riding with my son. I noticed the yellow lines in the mirrors and the Which Way Photo Challenge instantly came to mind. I realize I’ve already used the “rear view mirror” idea, but I had to do it again because I really enjoy how the lines repeat, but they don’t line up.
One of the things I love about word and photo challenges is that they provide you with a little direction. The blank canvas isn’t quite so “empty,” because you’ve been given a prompt to draw upon.
Sugar to the lips,
But a bitter aftertaste,
Your love is toxic.

How does one decipher,
Mixed messages conveyed?
Go where there is no path,
But be careful not to stray.
Reach for the stars is guidance…
That often goes around,
But can this be achieved…
When keeping both feet on the ground?
Am I shooting for the moon…
If I aim to rise above the crowd?
Or is this evidence…
That my head is in the clouds?
Unraveling ancient proverbs,
Double edged, their meanings dual,
Will knowledge bring me power…
Or the wisdom of a fool?
