The roadie

I started down this road early today
cup in hand and warmth in the belly.
Blindness quickly overcame me
but still I walk, oh yes,
I walk like the earth circles the sun—
I walk on.

None to guide me,
only noise and smell—
wind pushing me, rain washing ashes from my feet.
I know your face is in the world.

How will I find you, still as you are and
hidden in tall grasses?  How will I meet you?

I am listening for your little song. 

I am walking to you now.  


  1. Optimistic and evocative. Listening and walking sounds like a very good place to start to me.

  2. I like this, Rhonda. I do believe that we find if we keep walking, searching, and listening.

  3. You wont find anyone in this Australian outback scene...and that's the beauty of it..alone.. no'll find somethng better..Glad you chose this photo
