It seems so easy to take for granted the seasonal changes, but concern for climate change, small or large as man's impact may be, we must remain conscious that our innate solipsistic narcissism is not something our aesthetic nature can ignore...try as we might. May the journey never end.


TRAVELED


 


 


Once traveled


    looking back is a


         smoke-filled window.


 


Once traveled


    The smoky windows rattle their endless resentment at the windy changes.


 


But...The changes


      The rattles


          The smoky windows


               Oh, how sweet their receding motion.


                     Oh, how sweet to breathe the air of the uphill movement


                             of struggling roots


                                  of rustling branches


                                        of open spaces crying to be filled


 


                                            with visions


                                     with excavations of the mind


                               with tempestuous truth


                         with directions into endless detours


                   with paths...trails...roads...


roads to be...once again...


 


TRAVELED

This poem needs no introduction. Although I apreciate the sentiments to be wary of how we treat the earth. The movement, the feeling of busting free, perhaps escaping a the car after a long journey. A spring fling, yet so much more was conveyed in this.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 3/22/2012
Excellent. The travel from here to there, from season to season, and from hell to utopia has many diverse and sundry expressions of change, some of which can grate upon our sensibilities and then there are some which brings a smile to our faces and a extra beat to our hearts. You capsuled all this very well in your poetry today.
