Walker, there is no road


I got to thinking about this poem; I used to have the last two lines of it as my signature on poetry sites:

You walking, your footprints are
the road, and nothing else;
there is no road, walker,
you make the road by walking.
By walking you make the road,
and when you look backward,
you see the path that you
never will step on again.
Walker, there is no road,
only wind-trails in the sea.

(Antonio Machado, tr. Robert Bly, The Soul Is Here For Its Own Joy)

Preferable even to taking the road not traveled. When you make your own road, where no one has been before and where no one will go again, for it is transitory, there is all the possibility in the world. No need to choose....
