The Strangest Country - Poem by Kevin Patrick

Many strange countries have I ventured
in this short and lofty frugal life of
Fortuitous adventure

I’ve seen oceans of jellyfish disembark on Martian sands
And huddled under sleeping mountains
Of the early abodes of man

My feet have treaded upon the meridian of the everglades
Watching metallic ships explode helium
Out to the domains of outer space

But By far the most bizarre and inexplicable country I’ve seen
Has been the one that every man and women’s been
The strangest country is love itself

    Much as we may like to, we can't explore the stars or even the our Earth's deep ocean but we can all explore the mystery of love - nicely done! (Report) Reply

    A most enjoyable read that causes the reader to revisit their own adventures of life and the final line an unexpected segway. (Report) Reply
