Love letters from the road
To the great unknown.
And the wide open plains.
Finding poetry in all the moments you pass
From the morning of light
To the dusk of day.
The sounds of the road,
The tangle of memories
The vast horizon.
Nothing in between but spaces where you find yourself.
No wrong turns, just the roads not taken.
Places you approach from, spaces you depart from.
Desiring nothing yet everything
Following the heartbeat of the road.
Highways, low ways
Ahead, behind and beyond.
The momentum of the moment
Not knowing, not needing to know.
Yet untold, yet discovered.
Traversing the lines laid out before you
The story wanting to be written
Eyes toward the skies, heart toward the reflections.
And at the end of it all
Is to return home
With the spirit of adventure
Deep within you.
Max Tarrant is a poetic star.
