I knew I should have taken that left turn in Albuquerque

sometimes a wrong turn
is all it takes
to see the most
stunning scenery

sometimes mistakes
are the accidental detours
that lead
to profound joy

~~

I’ve actually never been to Albuquerque…but the title seemed appropriate. At dVerse, we were asked to write poetry about mistakes that we’ve made that have turned out for the best. I can’t think of any specific examples (although I’ve made PLENTY of mistakes), so I decided to go more philosophical.
