Shaman - Horse

Poem - Road Will Wait

The poem “Road Will Wait” was inspired by thoughts about a journey never truly ending as unexpected paths are revealed.


Road Will Wait

A journey does not stand alone
by a step or many miles
seeking goals with a twist
surprising those who quest an end

the mileage counted is a sham
for its worth in measurement
against the signs that infer
commonality between two men

the main path becomes a sham
as excursions are the rule
searching past the trampled path
still a journey of consequence

those small jaunt fulfill a need
to explore beyond the norm
at sunset the road will wait
with the journey to celebrate.
