I wrote this for a members challenge on The Poetry Sanctuary. The challenge was to write one off the top of your head about travelling (this was my entry). Enjoy.
As I lay, content with immobility
I dream of lands far removed
Of times I journeyed, just ‘cause
Feet burned when rested.
Now travels foreign to my rested eyes
The journey I embark fourth upon now
Requires travelling near, close to my heart
As my mind wanders freely
And feet find aches with each move
The dreams remain, ashen blues
Best laid travel plans, interrupted by life
No regrets; travelling a different path.
A journey with family is my treasure map
Discovering buried gems, unforseen
On past travels, lighting the future.
