Still waters run deep,

even in one's soul,

far too often we are

moving away from our

ordinary lives,

even while we are

still sitting in a recliner,

clutching something remote.

A vast world whispers

in everyone's ears,

we are all flying dutchman

marooned in Anytown U.S.A.

longing for the highway,

the my way, that trip we

have yet to take.

One can travel in

their writing,

it is my method of escape,

I enter the long lines

and move toward a

satisfactory finish,

but it is the journey

of words that is the

rush from the norm.

Someday I will

become a poem,

written in long squiggles

of black tread across

the asphalt to my completion,

I will seek what

my life has denied me,

abandoning my faith in man

to become a man of faith

who chronicles what's really

out there to discover.

In some thatched hut on

Easter island communing

with the stone heads,

or in the back room of

a fish market in Cambodia,

or right here on some

unclimbed southwest mesa

I will embrace the stranger

and make it my friend.

      Romanticism finds expression in you. And you are keenly lyrical in your thoughts. Thanks

      I love that Blake4D was your inspiration for this poem and that you gave him billing. I know which work the inspiration came from and it is a poignant piece. Your comments are so beautifully written and insightful. They are "works" all to themselves.
