The Journey Is A Picture - Poem by Sandra Fowler

The circle of your lantern patches snow.
Your face is weather beaten by wind's blow.
The safe moon is unreachable by air,
The fall of dark too eloquent to bear.

And yet your light comes on to me, brave friend.
The journey is a picture with no end.
I wonder. Could you use some company?
Warmth goes a long, long way so they tell me.

    The Journey Is (always) A Picture (of pleasure) , when the picture is imagefully penned by Sandra Fowler!

    I think we all need company on this journey known as life and regret our many losses. This poem is touching and comforting and beyond lovely....how it ever was given under a 10 baffles me....for it deserves ten times ten and than some..Have to believe someone hit the wrong key and didn't check back.....thanks for this delight...........marci.xo (Report) Reply

    a human touch
    on a desolate cheek
