Along The Road and Far Away

Along the Road, Margaret Mair, original art

Along the Road, Margaret Mair, original art

We are always moving,
Moving, moving on,
Rolling dustily down a bumpy road
Disappearing into the distance,
Looking for the next horizon;
We are always searching
Searching, seeking hard
Looking through trees,
Behind buildings, across water,
Over wide wild rolling seas,
Even driving down this dusty road
Streaked with sunlit spaces
Between shadowed ditches and
Lush overhanging trees;
We are driven, all too driven,
By the tyranny of time,
Wishing for, hoping for
Open space where we can see
Once more the arc of the sky
Encircling the fragile earth
Wrapping us all in a cosmic hug,
Where we can watch again
The sun rise and set
And spread its glory
All around us.

Written by Margaret Mair

  1. Poem and painting complement each other exquisitly. How true this:
    We are driven, all too driven,
    By the tyranny of time

    I know how creative time is limited and how wisely you spin words while you can.
