The longest road

26 Feb



I would take the longest road home

through the cities where there are crowds and lost souls and men with ugly smiles,

over high, lonely mountains where the ice and snow chill the bone.

across the cruellest seas where the waves climb high to claim me,

amidst the unexplored forests where the trees usher in the menacing, rustling dark,

into the bleakest deserts where the angry wind hurls sand into my eyes to blind me.


I would take the longest road home

if it meant passing by your door.

    What a wonderful sentiment, a “hero’s journey” while traveling home, the stuff of myths and legends. I always find that Joesph Campbell was right, no matter the narrative…it is one of a hero’s journey. Beautiful picture as well, an unknown ending written on her face.

      Smiles. I am glad you enjoyed. The epic journey just to pass by her door. And indeed, the outcome unknown.
