Poems of a Young Man: “ALONG FOR THE RIDE”


“Come along for the ride!” I entreated her.

“There is no destination.”

She smiled slowly and said she would.

Delight! She took my hand in hers

and off we took!

Through the world

in Time we flew together,

admiring the view.

Everything struck us as funny.

We talked a lot-

invited others aboard

and in our ecstasy, popped many a champagne cork.

Our journey of peace and fury

took us to more places

than memory or fantasy could conjure.

We walked

ran crawled flew swam jumped

and soared!

This shared odyssey showed us more

than we thought there was to know.

Our glorious flight taught us

how little we know

and how much we want to.

And somewhere along the way- what began as travel

turned into Quest.

(Though our map was just a blank page.)

And still-

together we seek.

Aboard the Starship Love

with deep purpose, unrealized

we plot a course through

our sea of the Infinite.

No end in sight.

Still together

with you, along for the ride.
