Silent freeways outside my window
In am in lavendar fields
No longer traveling the endless miles
That deduct emotion from my heart
I still sleep by the window and dream
Of the distances that are beyond my reach
Memories of the sun as I walked on the beach
As felt its rays upon my face
As I steadily quickened my pace
Fair weather friends
On fair weather days
Thoughts of home as my mind plays
The final trip home on the bus
Where soild rock exsists
Still there is the call of the road
As my mind silently resists

do you take the photos too?

Moses said...

There are a few with photos of my own but for the most part I just find them when I search for photos.The process is:I scour photoblogs and various images.When an image comes up that I can relate to then it is saved until a poem can be composed from it. It is quick like a spark.The image either causes a spark or it doesn't.

yes images are wonderful inspiration for writing. music too.

i saw on your profile that rainman is your favorite movie. that is really something...my son has autism and he is an artist. i wonder if any of his drawings would lend themselves to your poetry.
