The Lane to Nowhere

It’s just a lane

that goes nowhere

so

no-one is here

but

it takes me

somewhere special

my

imagination

is here

my

thoughts

are here

in the quiet

and the still

of my special place

I can be

anyone I want to be

I can be

loud or quiet

no-one will know

if I sing or whistle

no-one will hear

if I skip or hop

no-one will laugh

I can Jump

in puddles

and

kick some stones

it won’t matter

I can talk

to the trees

and listen

to the birds

because in the

lane to nowhere

there is serenity

peace

and beauty

for me

Very nice MM. Your poem has a child-like innocence. An escape from the busy world and back to a stress-free natural setting, where you can just 'be'.

Everyone should have a secret place like this one, a place to let the child within out to play. Beautifully done!

Hi EHQ, Down the lane to nowhere I am a 'free spirit' and it feels good:-)

Hi Timorous, that's it exactly!

I visit the lane everyday, maybe 'escape to my secret place' would be more accurate!

Thank you for dropping by and your comments are so appreciated, take care.

I know in the business of my life I need a place like this too. Some time ago I had such a place but no longer. Now, this place is in my imagination but it seems to work almost as well. Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece.

Hi writer20, I have had quite a few hub ideas down the lane, I should get myself one of those recorders that you can talk into, in preference to racing home before I forget my ideas:-)

What a lovely and inspirational poem. To me it is not a lane to nowhere but to a happy place to do whatever your heart desires.

Have a wonderful day.

Movie Master, we all need to experience the sanctuary in which your poem, "The Lane to Nowhere", provides a glimpse. Your poem allows us respite from our daily pilgrimage through this world, beckoning us to shed the weight of our inhibitions, thus releasing our spirits for a season. May we resolve to visit often. Awesome, thumbs up!! Regards, Robert

Movie Master 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

Hi Robert, it's nice to meet you.

Yes I agree, we all need some quality time to ourselves, some respite, everyone should experience a Lane to Nowhere, I hope you too have one to visit.

Thank you for visiting, your great comments and vote, just coming over to yours to visit, take care.
