Adventures beyond

An abecederian poem

By Emmy BPublished 5 months ago 1 min read
Top Story - January 2024

Another day on the road and I

barely know where my head starts and my heart ends.

Comprehending the sheer freedom of

disjointed plans and unplanned

encounters. I am

flying.

Growing day by day, everyday another plan another

happy discovery.

It's not every day you can get up and climb so

joyfully, full of a renewed sense of purpose.

Kinship found in unlikely places, and the knowledge that your

life belongs to you, truly. Where a

month feels like a year and a day is

never-ending. Can you hear the

open air calling you today?

Pass on by on your way to the ocean, or

quell your thirst for ancient

ruins on your way to your new everyday.

Seeing this life makes me

think - who are we living for if not ourselves, for the

unbelievable existence that is being human on this

vivid planet? I want to go north, to go

west and never stop walking. For us to hear the

xenial whispers of a life we can’t get enough of, to see me, to see

you reflected in the mirrors of opportunity, and there, the

zenith above: a canvas of possibilities.

Gratitude

    This has such a wanderlust feel to it, but in a quietly contented way. I love this line “ Seeing this life makes me think - who are we living for if not ourselves, for the unbelievable existence that is being human on this vivid planet?”

  • Ever restless, constantly stirring, moving, discovering--could there be any greater bliss?
