Going, a poem for #OctPoWriMo

I just found out about the existence of OctPoWriMo, as is my luck, on the very last day of October.

I’ve done the April NaPoWriMo twice now, so I’ll have to remember for next year.

Go check out all the great poems by other folks on their site, though!

However, since it’s not completely too late, I’ll share with you my poem based on today’s prompt which was a journey/travel theme:

Going

Some journeys have no ending.
Curious wanderers never stop.
Travel never ceases until the day you drop.
If you wish to keep on growing forward,
You must move from wherever you are,
Be it in your imagination or through lands near and far.
An incessant wanderlust urges this soul to explore
Every inch of earth from the woods onto the shore.
Nature seems to whisper messages to those that listen.
A meditative stillness in watching the waters glisten.
Hiking may have no real destination,
The seasons will come and go,
But unless you exit your buildings,
There’s some feelings you’ll never know.
