I just keep walking (a poem)

Having a difficult time getting inspired these last couple of days. To compensate, I submitted a few poems to one competition, and compiled some of my recent poems for possible submission to a full-length manuscript competition. Anyway, here is today’s entry…

How much have I missed with eyes closed?

I see enough to follow the story
but what happens in between?

I can step on every other stone
and still stay on the path

but the ones I step over
determine its direction

I don’t know where it’s going…
