The Path

Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it…

—Jeremiah 6:16, NASB

Well-worn stones carved by years 

of stormwater and wild winds,

a slow degradation, our Earth’s 

eroding ways —these are time markers,

silent clocks but for the low 

steady whistle of March breezes

as I step through yesterday,

today, tomorrow, and all this 

window has witnessed since 

the beginning when no moss 

had yet gathered, no leaf dropped, 

no groove had marked the path

I now take— But to where? 


I hear no answer but wait.

—C.L. Fisher, March 2023
