Desolate Road

Desolate road, no passersby

None to compete with- no rush to leave behind

How to pace the steps?

Remaining faithful to the voices of a soul

Without the sundry conversations

Feet can feel the noise of displaced gravels

Dust unsettles and creates a haze

Blushing sky is barely visible

Sharp winds narrate tales of here and yonder

Wants to snuggle the skin with eagerness

Strong emotions of nature palpable

Fires up the spirit of a traveller

Challenge the long-standing nature of solitariness

Through the haze 

Particles of dust flow as guide  

Desolate journey and a road that awaits

It will be stretched beyond any limits

This may be a detour to freedom

Could be a passage for the pilgrim who seeks©
