Forgot to thank Sammi for hosting!

Word Prompt




I could not help but remember one particular day when I was in Siena and got unbelievably lost.  One wrong turn and you are way not where you think you are!  Needless to say, I meandered more than my share.  Didn’t have a Fitbit at the time, but my phone said I clocked in more than 30K steps!

Walked up this street

Then down this other

Stepped to the side

Then up another


I have no fear

I am not lost

I turned to the left

This one I crossed?


Back to the right

I’ll find my way

I’ve meandered far

Have I gone astray?

  1. Q,

    Meandering is the human condition, after all. We ain’t really got a destination, even when we think we do. We’re meandering, to that place we think we know or to a place we want to visit.

    You cracked the code with this one. 🙂

  2. You weren’t scared really? I sometimes feel uneasy if I get lost… trying to feel more comfortable with that uncertainty. It’s kooky, too, because I have a really good sense of direction. Enigma!

  3. How fun and the BEST way to tour new places and enjoy one’s own neighborhood. I do love wandering about! Now, please do not go astray … 😉 And if you feel yourself at risk of ‘astraying’ … give a holler so we can set you back on a non-astray path … 😉
