the last blank April 2022 PAD Challenge 29-1


The Last Trip


The last trip I took

was one of the best.

Now I’m home

and taking a rest.


The next on the list?

To Kenya, I’ll aim.

Or perhaps to Ashville.

Who am I to blame?


For this wander lust

that’s perpetually within me.

World exploration

helps form my reality.


Giraffes and elephants

They’re calling.

Hope this pandemic doesn’t

keep travels stalling.


The last trip I took,

I hope’s not the last.

I look forward to others

and having a blast.

The little wooden church

huddled amongst the elms and pines.

A path led through the grasses to where

the morning sun turned the door golden.

The spire pointed up, inviting a higher focus.

The giant gnarled trees

allowed a road to pass through

to where a couple stood silhouetted

in the glowing sunlight.

 Headed Home


Cat of nine tails poked up

by a rustic dock,

looking out to a silver lake.

A flock of gulls headed toward

the sun glowing orange

in the creamy sky

above a flat shoreline.
