Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.
Today’s poem is Reluctance by Robert Frost. Are you reluctant to let go of something in your life? Are you hanging on when you shouldn’t because you need to move on? Are you afraid to let go because the future might be worse than the present? Or are you unwilling to let go because life, just as it is, feels so right?
I love the way Frost’s poetry seems to be about simple things, then changes in the blink of an eye into something profound, something I need to think about for days.
What will you think about? Remember there are no quizzes here, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share. Absolutely no dissecting allowed. Just come along for the “read.” What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week? If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you? We’ll listen
