PAD 30: Dead End

Today is the last day of the poem a day challenge for April 2016. What a month it’s been! The prompt today is to write a dead end poem.

Dead End

We reached a dead end
On our hike through the woods
Meandering paths amidst
Majestic pines and verdant ferns,
Led us across brooks and streams
Balancing rock to rock,
Sometimes relying on a handy stick
Or each other’s hand,
Other times simply hoping not to slip.
Up hills we trekked, and mountains,
Across heaths and peaks,
Down again into the vales.
And now, an impasse–
We are stopped by nature,
Perhaps our own natures,
So we must backtrack to where
We can once again see our way
And walk hand in hand
Into the clearing.
