Uncertainty

Shall I fret if the future is in mist?

Is the path happy even without seeing?

Can someone guide, grasping gently my wrist,

Pulling me forward, when I am hesitating?

Shall the guide leave, perhaps as a surprise?

Is there mist in my eyes?


For DVerse’s Quadrille Monday, where the word of the week is “fret,”  and including Fandango’s word of the day, “mist.” I’m not sure if I should change something about this poem, but I hope you like it.

  1. A wistful fret that starts and ends with ‘mist’ (with a ‘wrist’ in the middle and the idea that something has been missed) and your quadrille is an extended play on the sea fret! Wonderful!
