Written as part of A Week for Writing, which offers the word Wanderlust, AND B-A-R Wordy Wednesdays which offers the word “Adventure” as inspiration.

the afternoon crawls to a stop today,
for an adventure my heart seems to yearn,
not one is found, no treasure near my way,
I cannot move, this work I cannot spurn.

but my muse does have a mind of its own,
it finds a world far away to wander,
on its paths it is lost, and not alone,
for it takes me along, makes me ponder.

the rivers I cross, over clouds I soar,
on camels I trek over desert sands,
I sit on the moon, count the stars galore,
walk in the markets of exotic lands.

wanderlust my muse, it never stays still,
it takes me along when I seek some thrill.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. You made my mind travel along with yours to all those places from deserts, to stars, to the rivers, to the moon and to the markets as well. Lovely! I also loved the quote in the picture. πŸ™‚

  3. You took me to places known & unknown,
    Your words made me yearn,
    To travel more & more,
    And read your blog some more.
