what did they find at the end of the path?
were there answers?
were there solutions?
was the way clear,
the sky cloudless?
did the dragonflies finally speak?
did a bridge miraculously appear?
did the water turn to ice,
a solid foundation for the rest of the journey?
or did they jump and simply swim?
