Seeing Backwards

Uncharted paths-

do those words

go together?

It’s as if

our eyes are

on the back of

our heads

so we can see

where we’ve come from.

Can we see

where we’re going?

If we walked backward,

would we then see

the path ahead?

A puzzle.

Life-

looked at in reverse-

seems to show us

what we needed

to find the place

where we are now.

Those steps

that seemed like

zigs and zags

at the time

can, in retrospect,

reveal

that we

took the

most direct path

after all.
