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
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
reaching out
to a far horizon
beneath a clear blue sky
with sugar coated promises
of the sweet life
opening up
just around the next bend

I speed ahead
pulled by the yellow line
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 .
