Life, on the road ahead (a poem)

Posted Dec 12 2010 12:00am
Life, on the road ahead ************************ ********* Feininger, Andreas, 1906-1999, photographer


On a long road, winding,
around the bend
a sign
warning
sharp curve, slow down
danger ahead


The long yellow line
a siren's call
pulling me into life
sprawling out beyond the gap
where valley wide
beckons
reaching out
to a far horizon
beneath a clear blue sky
streaked
with sugar coated promises
of the sweet life
opening up
just around the next bend

careening
joy
riding
I speed ahead
pulled by the yellow line
unbroken
ignoring the warning
I catapult into nothing
but the pure desire to experience

life on the road ahead.


*****************************************

It's another One Shot Poetry Sunday challenge and today's photo by Andreas Feninger, beckons me to the open road, to find that place where words collide with wide-open spaces, where sky meets earth and limitless possibilities expand into nothing.

There's a whole bunch of great poetry going on over at One Shot Poetry -- go give it a read, and perhaps... heed the call of the open spaces of your mind where poetry creates a whole new world of possibility within you!

Go on. You know you want to. Give it a go at One Shot Poetry .
