The Journey (the 5th in the Traveller Diaries)

The journey started in 68

Like the hypnotic humming of a bird

Even back then I was always late

To be early would be absurd

We start our unknown journey

With no destination sight

With hopes to become attorney?

And the power it gives to take flight?

LUTT

My train keeps on going

There is still fuel in the tank

A year older means more puffing and blowing

Mouth wide open, expression almost blank

I continue to perform the ‘Swan’

Cool and calm is the top line view

Inside pistons fire like a mad man

You never want to reveal the real you

Another year is added to my number

Its birthday time on the horizon again

Yester year I had time to slumber

But now, it’s a huge thank you to all my friends

The hope is to keep life simple

Drive your journey your way

Stay as cute as a dimple

Retain your essence – afterall its your brithday! (it’s mine actually)

 

The Flight of Dance

Eyes transfixed, looked from the top down

Mesmerised as bodies intertwined

His with hers, hers with his

They were only of one mind

                   An expectant audience drew breath

                     As her head hurtled towards the dance-floor

A safe pair of arms and hands

Could not deny her aura anymore

Two turns, bodies completely in sync

Her hypnotic sweet odour consumed

For him to never let her go

As though they were the only two people in the room

She slid furtively across his back

He spun on his toes to face

Inches apart, hearts beating

They drew closer, ready for their embrace

Intensely their fingers interlock

Gripped by unbridled emotions

She leaps like a gazelle

It was poetry in motion

The final curtain call arrives

Finely balanced like a bird on a beam

Did time fly palpably so fast?

And was this dance just another dream…
