Unknown Destination …Prose

Unknown Destination

 

The sun 

it shines

through a break in the clouds.

 

Illuminated

shoreline

far off into the distance.

 

Sand glows

sea glistens

my mind perceives the warmth.

 

I want

heart longs

to be in that place.

 

Bitting 

cold

return

as dark clouds swirl around.

 

Soft mud

knee deep

still river sits between.

 

Grass tufts

firm ground

a hopscotch of hope.

 

Some false

sink down

when on them I stand.

 

Mistakes made

miss-steps

in mud river slide.

 

Strength

sapping

embrace

this marsh that I’m in.

 

Mud coats

each time

I pull myself out.

 

Constant 

reminder

of times that I’ve failed.

 

I carry 

the weight

it drags to the ground.

 

Hard work

to move

to get myself out.

 

Respite

reprieve

come to dry land.

 

A fire can be built.

 

Shelter

warming

mud flakes as it dries.

 

Lifted 

in spirit,

watch flames in a  dance.

 

Muscles

relax

shake off the mud.

 

Lightning

the load

before moving on.

 

Journey 

continues

Unknown the path.

 

Look forward,

see lights,

of campfires dotted around.

 

I’m not here alone.
