Parting of the ways

This triolet is for the Secret Keeper’s writing prompt. The words:

NEAR | DIVIDE | LINK | BACK | TEACH

 

We are close to the parting of the ways,

We are come, the bounds of the past undone,

Like fallen petals the joy of those days.

We are close to the parting of the ways

Of the heart, flame dies but some memory stays

And guides us back—to the path begun,

We are close. To the parting of the ways

We are come, the bounds of the past undone.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
