Journey I and II


A journey that's made for the last time
Is poignant with thoughts of time past
Of people of moments of pictures
Sad to think this time is the last

A journey that's made for the first time
Is of scenes that pass by in a rush
No background, no substance, no meaning
Quick sketches with a broad brush

A journey that's made in the middle
Is tedium where the views are unseen
To get on, to pass by, to ignore
Insignificance born of routine

A journey that's made in the end
Is a trial borne day after day
To accept, to assist, to politely endure
Wasting one's interest away

A journey's that only made once
Is a privilege, not labour of love
To record, to appreciate, to absorb
And all of those verses above

----------
Journeys made by design
Are private attempts at fulfilment
To seek, to acquire, to perspire
At a painful pace of achievement

Journeys made in your mind
Are vital to real life success
To invent, to dispute, to evolve
Make our thinking progress

Journeys made in your soul
Result in new ways of seeing
Listening, guessing and smelling
Add body to your method of being.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
