Day 1

The prompt: start with a line from another poem

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and there I stood as long as I could.
I had to admit I was helplessly lost
As I held my GPS aloft.

"No signal" flashed in dying light
And I cursed those stupid satellites.
I shook the finicky little thing,
But all I got was a warning ring.

Curse you, Mr. Robert Frost
Who probably was never lost.
While I myself, on the other hand
Seem always in uncharted land.

So universe, please send me a sign.
I might even listen to you this time.

NaPoWriMo Day 1

    1. Thank you for reading :)
      - I confess, I've always had a hard time with the "follow directions" thing. (and I've never had much fondness for Robert Frost, either... haha)
