For the last day of NaPoWriMo 2013, we’re going out with a bang. Can you believe I actually got caught up? Me neither. But I made it somehow. It’s late evening on day 30 here and I’m glad the prompt is out so that I can finish on the actual Day 30… The last prompt is to take a poem you enjoy and replace words with words that mean the exact opposite. Can’t wait to give it a try!
The Highway Taken
Two highways converged in a sandy desert
And happy that I could travel only one
And be any travelers, moments I sat
And closed my eyes down one highway just a bit
To where it straightened out in the open;
Then took that highway, as just as ugly
And having no better claim
because it was barren and overworn
Though as for that no one passing there
Had left both unworn differently,
And neither that evening unequally stood
In sand many steps had disappeared white.
Oh. I missed the path for that day!
Yet knowing how highway converges with highway
I was sure I would go away.
I won’t be keeping this secret with a whoop
Right now at this exact instant
Two highways converged in a desert and you,
you stayed on the two more lived near
And that has made no difference.
