Haiku: Journey

Leave a comment

Mother Nature is delivering me a MIGHTY beatdown, so I’m doing another reblog of from another blogging friend who has selected “Journey” to be the subject. Rob’s all about the haiku, so… enjoy.

Journey

In a step awaits
something bold, undiscovered —
adventure is you.


I swear, some days you just want to step out of your skin — just trade out that old mortal coil for something a little bit lighter, more versatile, and free to explore. Just blow it all off for a chance to make the world unfamiliar again. For a day — an hour — a minute, even. Because sometimes you find yourself both unwilling and unable to move forward in any direction.

Weren’t we born to be explorers?
Pioneers?
Engineers of hatchet and hammer, innovators of rope and lever —
now bound to a chair, there chained to a copier —
literally fettered by all of our achievements.

There’s got to be a better way to do this.

What step would you take?
