Thank You For the Trip


We come down paths; we walk up trails.
We meet on the way fellow travelers
To our special places.
But all roads end somewhere. Do we
Have quite enough words for goodbye?
We do, just not the spaces.



Each week on Sunday the Monkey Man gave a challenge to write a poem in only 160 characters. Like writing a tweet – it takes some doing to convey thought in so few words. It has come to the end of that journey and this is my thank you to him for the trip.

I love the pic above you sitting next to the statue.. i can see some similarities.. I noticed you were sitting with your legs the same way, i'm surprised you don't have a book on your lap though.. great poetry..
