Travel the word

IMG_0943 (1)

Travel always takes you home.
And so does reading.
If you want to write a poem,
and don’t know where to start, you can start with ideas from many places.

Let’s say, quotes.
“I have found that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” -Mark Twain

And you can start with a subject.
How about a place that you would like to go?

Desert Places
be Robert Frost

Snow falling and night falling fast, oh, fast
In a field I looked into going past,
And the ground almost covered smooth in snow,
But a few weeds and stubble showing last.

The woods around it have it – it is theirs.
All animals are smothered in their lairs.
I am too absent-spirited to count;
The loneliness includes me unawares.

And lonely as it is, that loneliness
Will be more lonely ere it will be less –
A blanker whiteness of benighted snow
With no expression, nothing to express.

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars – on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.
