Second Verse Same as the First

dverse  Adventures in travelling post by Matthew Henningsen @ theliterarydoc.com.
“I want you to consider the adventure of travel in your poetry today. Write about a place you’ve been, or a place where you would like to go, write of things that have or could have happened.”

Took off on a tangent – hope that’s OK, Matthew

Been traveling
this winding way
all my life
walking, running, crawling, stumbling
blinded by the rising sun
clear-eyed on the long
straight stretches
foot heavy on the pedal
then
screeching to a sudden halt
just in time
making time
saving time
wasting time
learning, forgetting,
changing, growing,
grasping, letting go,
baffled, amazed,
grateful
watching the stars
flare and spark
horizon to horizon
coasting through the
twilight to greet
the deja vu…
jamais vu …
hairpin curve.

  1. I specially love this part:

    grateful
    watching the stars
    flare and spark
    horizon to horizon

    I think all of our life is just travelling from one journey to another ~ Good one Deb ~
