  1. Nice! It's like the checkout line at the grocery store. The one that looks the fastest is really the slowest.

  2. Amen, Alex. Stop and smell the roses. Really notice things around you.

  3. Hey, Robyn, you don't have a normal url for this post because you didn't put a title in. It is going to "http://robyn-campbell.blogspot.com/2015/03/click-to-view-in-external-page.html". Are you going to be changing that for tomorrow? I wanted to link your blog for Poetry Friday and wanted to get the actual link. Thanks!

    2. Donna, it looks right on my end. :( I'll try to dig deeper and see why that was true for you. Thanks.

    3. I tried to fix it, Donna. It looks right from my end. I'm scratching my head.

    4. It will still work, and now that you have a title in there it is easy to get to your post. Thanks!

  4. I agree Robyn, if we do not stop and enjoy the journey along the way, what good was it? Choosing that path with you, my amigo friend. :)

    1. Thanks, Anne. It needs editing. But I wanted to post it anyway. Right now, with everything that we are going through with Christopher, I'm reflecting on the REAL things in life. xo

  6. It's all a matter of choosing which road to take, isn't it? And best wishes to those who carve out their own road! Thanks for sharing, Robyn, and for hosting today! For possibly the first time ever since I started blogging, I do not have a Poetry Friday post for today. Instead, I'm reminding everyone of my blog post from this past Tue., announcing the release of Lee Bennett Hopkins' newest anthology in which I (and several Poetry Friday regulars) have a poem!

    1. It is a matter of choice, Matt. I have learned this week to enjoy every moment. We never know when it might end.

  7. Thanks for hosting, Robyn. I like your rethinking of the Robert Frost poem.

    I'm announcing Author Amok's 2015 National Poetry Month project. We'll be doing a month of clothing-related poetry. Looking for guest bloggers -- more info at this week's post, plus a poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

  8. Hi, Robyn - Look! We spell our name the same way. :0) And we both love Robert Frost's "Road Not Taken" - thanks for reminding us all to slow down and b-r-e-a-t-h-e this week.

    At Life on the Deckle Edge, I have our Haiku Student Poet of the Month for March, David McCord. http://www.robynhoodblack.com/blog.htm?post=987783

    Thanks so much for hosting - and, Welcome!

  9. Oops! COLE McCord. (Not David McCord - but I did have poetry on the brain!) ;0)

  10. Good choice! And a lovely poem. Thanks for hosting. I added my link.

  11. Love your poem, Robyn. I like the quieter road myself. My poem is in a similar vein, but it's about choosing to seize the day . . . still, I see the similarities.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Choosing the right path is so important, as well as remaining flexible enough to change paths down the road if necessary.

    At Alphabet Soup, I'm all about inhabiting chocolate :)! (My link goes live Friday at 6 a.m. EST.)

    Thanks for hosting!

  13. Nice to meet you Robyn! I see you're a "haiku-ist." I am, too! And so is Robyn Hood Black, Jone MacCulloch, and a lot of other Poetry Friday participants.

  14. So glad you found the right path for your journey, Robyn! Thanks for hosting PF today. It's a busy road, but a most satisfying one!

    1. Yes it is, Michelle. Very satisfying. I would not want to do anything else. Would you?

  16. I think I like the idea of that road less taken, Robyn. Thanks for hosting. I'm sharing one of my own poems today, and still another winter poem.

  17. Hi Robyn! Thanks so much for hosting this week. I would love a road that is pure delight, please. :) Fats is up today at GatheringBooks with excerpts from The Icarus Girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I choose to walk your less traveled road, Robyn. Thanks so much for hosting.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lovely how you point the right direction to the simple, joyful path. And thanks for hosting today! I love how you are using the links with photos/graphics. So pretty!

  20. "So I made a turn
    to the road
    less traveled
    You'll be surprised
    at what I found."

    Amen! Thank you for this, Robyn...and thank you for hosting!
    Happy Poetry Friday!

    Thanks for hosting us!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ha! Thanks for hosting, and I really like your riff on the road less traveled by.

  33. Hi Robyn - we just need to step off a road that's taking us along a dull journey going nowhere .. and enjoy the challenge of a new route - see what's round that corner ...

    Cheers ... Hilary

  34. Hi, Robyn--

    Thanks for hosting! Even with a snow day for teachers and kids yesterday, I stuck to my usual schedule (and had a lot of sparkling outdoor time)--I post my link on Friday but don't come back to make the rounds until the weekend. Then I get to enjoy the conversation as well as the posts!

    I like how your poem reminds us (ME) that whichever road you start down, there's almost always another option nearby, if we can be brave enough to make the turn. Nice to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. A delightful response to a favorite poem. Interesting to remember that we choose our road. Glad to be back with Poetry Friday friends with a narrative poem about Big Red X's! Thanks for hosting this week!

  36. Sometimes the secret is finding the perfect path to walk. Thanks for hosting this poetry event.

  39. What a great tribute to Robert Frost! I love your poetry.

  40. This is a fabulous riff off one of my favorite poems!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like your take on the Road Less Travelled. :) Glad you took the road that was best for you.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey buddy! *waving*
    Well done! I think Mr. Robert Frost would have been really proud!
    Btw, are you doing the A to Z Challenge next month?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ooh! I love it!! Such a great and unique twist on a popular theme.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love Frost and love your take on his poem.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've traveled both roads with pain and sorrows along with easy triumphs. Sorry, I guess I'm not much help. But if I had to make a choice, I could take the easy path. Let some other dumb ass take the path less traveled.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Getting a bit Frosty in here... Robert Frost(y). Love it. Great work.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
