Detours

Detours

Go around
Find a new route
Pylons dot the city
Springing up in new places
On a daily basis
Growing faster
Than spring flowers

Life, too
Has its detours
Leading over rocky roads
Past unexpected events
No road map to prepare
For the sudden changes

Detours can lead
to unvisited side roads
Unanticipated explorations
Off the beaten path
New ideas grow
New adventures

I've had my share of detours
Times of growth
Learning strength
Then setting a new course
Travelling through life
Until the next detour
Never knowing where it will lead
