Crossroads by anandgandhi Crossroads by anandgandhi
Two friends who met here and embraced are gone,
Each to his own mistake; one flashes on
To fame and ruin in a rowdy lie,
A village torpor holds the other one,
Some local wrong where it takes time to die:
This empty junction glitters in the sun.

So at all quays and crossroads: who can tell
These places of decision and farewell
To what dishonour all adventure leads,
What parting gift could give that friend protection,
So orientated his vocation needs
The Bad Lands and the sinister direction?

All landscapes and all weathers freeze with fear,
But none have ever thought, the legends say,
The time allowed made it impossible;
For even the most pessimistic set
The limit of their errors at a year.
What friends could there be left then to betray,
What joy take longer to atone for; yet
Who could complete without the extra day
The journey that should take no time at all?

- W. H. Auden



The artwork has been made possible with the stock generously provided by lots of amazing stock photographers here on deviantart... i'll soon credit them and link to their pages from here... thanks guys for your hardwork!

Lovely graphic work. :) I particularly liked the elements of the Dark subtly intermingled with the Light.
