#Bloganuary No. 2

What’s a road trip you’d like to take?

They ask me this and I scratch my head,
I’ve done a few, and of more I’ve read,
What can eclipse the roads I’ve traveled
And the stories and thoughts that they in turn unravelled.

Our very own Nullarbor had its Kombi run
Roos, wombats and camels in the burning sun
Hitchhikers share the driving load
A thousand kilometers straight of unbending road.

The road from Amman to Petra ran past
The Wadi Musa where Moses’ water flowed fast
And what could beat the old Al Khazneh treasury
Immortalized by Indiana of current screen memory.

The Grand Ol ‘Opry House in Tennessee
Launched our troupe north through green Kentucky
Fields of Ohio, Virginia thunder
Our church history alive, and we’re from Down Under.

Bulawayo to the bush winds a long dusty track
We travel to schools and communities out back
We listen to stories and talk about hope
Sink bores for water; with these we’ll all cope.

Maharashtra in India runs east to west
The road is quite crowded, we all do our best
From Mumbai to Yavatmal is quite a long haul
But the people we meet make it all a big ball!

So “What’s a road trip you’d like to take?”
One of these again – for old time’s sake!

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.

  1. Your poem takes me on a wondering pilgrimage via verse. Words and pictures lead me through your adventures. I feel quite satisfied within my imagination. Thanks for the trip.
