What is my bearing?

Where does my compass point today?
Unsure of myself,
I stare at and contemplate
the bouncing needle.

Where does my compass point today?
I pick up my pen.
Should I compose an essay,
poetry, or prose?

Where does my compass point today?
I grab my pencils.
Should I fill my sketchpad with
doodles from my mind?

Where does my compass point today?
I lift my camera.
Should I capture images
in one point of time?

Where does my compass point today?
I take up a book.
Should I get lost in my own
imagination?

Where does my compass point today?
The needle settles.
I determine my heading
and I move toward it.

Compass
