The Journey

Solitary travels…

Of reflections and shadows… 

Of ownerless ripples in time

drifters within a peaceful autumn breeze…

Of forsaken colours and light…

Of abandoned yearnings in life 

fluttering within nature’s inevitable fate…

 

Solitary travels…

Embrace the dancing leaves in the wind…

Before you take to the road 

your dreams and desires…

Your fears and angst…

Your loathing of urban smog 

of starless, 

blinding city skies…

of absurd night traffic lights…

of mechanical dictating paths…

 

Solitary travels 

Melt into the live music of their bars…

Into their searching artist’s hearts…

Into their crying poet’s souls…

 

Solitary travels…

Every day and night…

Become their dancing leaves in the wind…

Like an ownerless ripple in time…

Like an abandoned yearning in life…

(Xoanxo 2018)
