2017 November Capbook Challenge Writer's Digest/The Journey to Somewhere
The Journey to Somewhere
the fool begins his journey destination unknown red sky in morning
sailors warning this morning’s sky red the world tinted pink
as if colored by children out of the lines a free exploration
over time the journey includes camels & horses
cars, planes, & trains &… the spice trade the desert stretches
in all directions compass securely in my pocket i am prepared
mountains rise like far pavilions frank waters
writes in his book at the turn of the century people came to the west
aboard the train they saw pike’s peak judged it to be close
they thought they could walk there before lunch
distance in the desert can deceive as the sun rises
temperatures rise people get lost people die in the desert
