Wanderlust


For today's blog I simply wish to share a poem with you, my fellow travelers. It is one I wrote and I believe it will resonate in your own hearts as well. I call it Wanderlust.

I wonder what it would be like
to take a long cross-country hike,
or to walk upon a foreign shore
where I had never been before.

I wish to climb a mountain high,
so high that I could reach the sky,
or sail a ship across the sea
with nothing but the wind and me.

I’d love to taste strange food delights
and stand on wondrously tall heights,
to feel a bike roar under me -
there is so much to do and see.

I think it’s time to leave this chair
to travel there and everywhere,
to kick the mundane back in place
and live my life from a suitcase.

An original poem by Miekie (Marietjie Uys).
