The Road (poem)

What could the winds bring

To this traveler on the road

Scents of some past

Whispers of dreams

Soft strokes upon the face

Reasons for staying

Reasons for waiting

Reasons returning


The traveler shouted to the winds

What draws you onto this road

Faceless voices

Comforting veils

Echoes through my heart

Reasons recalling

Reasons for stalling

Reasons appealing


The traveler cried

Falling down upon the road

So familiar

Again at last

Its gentle caresses

Reasons refilling

Reasons unfolding

Reasons still holding


Then in unsettling tears

The winds drew reasons of their own

A face to the voices

Some love kept it unclear

The source behind the winds

Was there upon the road

I have sure been on that road during certain stages of my life. I never liked the questioning, as there could never be an answer.
