The road ahead:


But for the wild

Within and without

Pushing every step

Every mile

For hundreds

Beneath unforgiving sun

And the balm of starlight

We become nocturnal creatures

Hiding through the days

Until night is a home

A friendly face

Waiting to greet us

We stare out into darkness

Into a middle distance

All breath and effort

And rhythmic strides

Until we return

To our animal selves

Racing for days

Across any terrain

Seeking an answer

That is always

Far ahead – Caroline A. Slee
