#OctPoWriMo – Day 22 – “Off-Road”

Off-Road // by Jennifer Patino

 

Back on the road,
a lean-to,
a backwoods bungalow,
under a cove of greenery,
the one you could spot
no matter how far
off course we got

“You know,
I could never stay in one spot
for too long,
a gypsy by blood,
a wayfarer, a wanderer,
running on empty,
a penniless squanderer”

And your eyes
were trained to wander
to the treeline, and to the heart
of the forest, and beyond,
“to where the owl clan claimed me”,
I struggled to stay in a wise mind,
but never felt worthy

“We’re here now,
please listen, believe me”,
through detours, off road
adventures, here’s that
ramshackle structure,
where your dreams insisted
you’d make your final departure

You send me on my way,
back to a semblance of home,
by your wishes,
I left you to complete our journey
alone
