Hitchhikers Lullaby - A Poem

Updated on May 23, 2012

(seventeen months on the road today)

300 miles on the road today

there is no bed where I can stay

I find a place under a giant tree

mother nature is protecting me

three other travelers are already there

we have a lot of things to share

A bagpipe and a violin

the cicadas are soon joining in

a nearby river plays his part

the moon and the stars are sending energy straight into my heart

the wind is whispering his melody

the sounds of the forest are delighting me

in the distance a dog is barking but why

he wants to join the hitchhikers lullaby

      Hitchhiking sounds fun, under the giant tree. The hitchhikers lullaby and cicadas... Lovely piece, flows like the river, clean and pure.

      This nicely puts into the place, the joys of being in that one little spot on planet Earth, where everything is working out, and every sound just completes the feeling of the place.

      Very nice! :)

      I love this poem. I have always wanted just to wonder and see whats over the next hill. Sleep under the stars and not worry about the everyday problems and rat race.
