“In my wildest dreams

I journey to the river sea,

where adventure awaits and

the path becomes blurred.

Those who wander a thousand miles do so because

they are no longer afraid of becoming lost

in direction, and in themselves.

I am sure that what I encounter along the way

will be as beautiful as the stars on a clear night,

or a water-lillied dragonfly pool.

Rather than the destination,

it is the journey that matters,

in the end.

Journey wisely,

but journey not with contempt.”

Prompt: Journey

Check out the book Journey to The River Sea by Eva Ibbotson, my inspiration for this post.
