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?
