Journeys – A Poem

Some journeys lead us to our selves:

Packing Samsonite in nostalgia,

Stamping passport memorabilia,

Staycation’s globetrotting avatar

Plans trips, in invisible ink, where:

The Matterhorn chairlifts Whistler,

Hilting Excalibur in Snowdonia,

Seating sofa safaris to Luangwa 

Stirring spicy crawfish jambalaya,

Mining sapphire in big sky Montana

Fly-fishing souvenirs to Vancouver.

Imagination’s vision quest walker

Globes the inner sanctum, where

Some journeys lead us to ourselves.

  1. A lovely poem, Suzette! It took me on a journey back to several of the places you mentioned. Places with wonderful memories. Thank you. John

  2. What exactly do people get out of the whirl of different colours? They take photos and get back in the bus/car/plane and go look for another shot to post on instagram or to show the folks back home. What have they seen, learned?

      1. I believe there is travel and there is discovery and the two aren’t necessarily linked. If you can’t see the interest of what’s in front of your nose every day, you won’t see what’s in front of other people’s noses all the time either.

  3. I need to do some tome and reading to get the gist in all the places mentioned….
    You neve leave us without some form of clarity

    1. So glad that you find it interesting and worthwhile to look up some of the places mentioned. Happy researching. And yes , I do try for a bit of clarity. I do hope that readers make their own judgements of the poetry. There is no one definitive meaning in my little scribbles. Safe travels. Many blessings to you. Thank you.😊
