Ode to Winding Road

Updated on December 4, 2014

Ode to Winding Road

Where did I take thee... on winding road
perhaps to places...
yet unknown.. down paths
laden with softest scenes..
and of golden dreams

Where souls unseen...have been before
leaving notes of brightest thoughts
past picket fences.. of weather white
wandering alone .. viewing sights

Up tree lined spaces...places
silent with sounds.. what common-ness
did we find...or was found

As we set upon.... this journey fair,
take me back to that place where...
my mind was calm and so serene
when Nature and wonder
combined to dream

      Thank you for a great comment Sparklea..

      I often like the silence of sound.. it lets me think..

      early morning walks.. are not for me..

      I am a late sleeper.. (ha ha ha )

      thank you .. again for the comment..

      Voted up and beautiful. The picture is beyond awesome. "where souls unseen have gone before..." wow, doesn't it make you wonder who has been on a path you are walking? I am very nostalgic, and I love the wonder of life, the beauty and stillness of nature. "Wandering alone..." I do this in the very early morning 5;30 a.m. Nothing can describe the still and calm I feel, the stars in the sky, watching dawn come. "places silent with sounds" - off the charts phenomenal, I know exactly what you are talking about! 'take me back to that place where my mind was calm...' I suggest you go for early morning walks and put yourself back into that place...nature is all around us and free from God for ours to enjoy.

      Thank you for this inspiration and the GORGEOUS photo...I can plop myself right in it. God bless. Sparklea :)
