Poetry Friday: Luci Shaw



Wrong Turn
by Luci Shaw

I took a wrong turn the other day.
A mistake, but it led me to the shop where I found
the very thing I'd been searching for.

(Read the rest of this succinct and perfect little poem here, at The Writer's Almanac.)

I have recently discovered Lucy Shaw and enjoyed many of her poems. Interesting, I find it challenging to read prose written by poets. Last week, I returned a prose book by Shaw to the library, only partly read. I just didn't have the time or energy to plow through it, even though some of the writing is beautiful.

Thank goodness for wrong turns!
