I Travel Far


A new poem written for the local branch of NLAPW to which I belong.

I Travel Far

I travel far,
One step leading into another.

God-inspired movers,
With the bounce of their gait,
Carry me
Over crusty earth and sprigs of grasses.

I travel far.

Man-inspired wheels,
Revolving two, three, four or more
Move me
Across the hard paved and rutted miles.

Again I travel far.

Man-floated visions
Sail streams, lakes, and seas
Cradling me
In land-less horizons.

Still I travel far.

Man-desired flight
Reaching the heavens and beyond
Wings me
Away to the far side of home.

I travel far,
One step leading into another.
Searching for self.
Searching for you.
