The road to love

                       Parksville, N.Y. revisited, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

A life is a shape
       of sorts
a series of directions
       a series of choices
a series of decisions
       which we sometimes
take for granted
       or to which we pay
less than sufficient

A fork in the road
       an option or dilemma
it can puzzle us
       unless we know
where we are heading
       what life lies ahead
the road to heaven
       the road to hell
the road to nowhere
       the road to love ?

John Lyons
