No Detour

The poetry style for this week’s “In-Form Poet Wednesday” at Poetic Bloomings is the Dorisimbra.  One of the best places to find its definition is on C. R. Ward’s Random Thoughts blog.

No Detour

The endless stretch of road is smaller now.
We make the best of mileage that remains.
Our memories are viewed as fields to plow,
the autumn harvest of dreams, joys and pains.

Town to town,
people stare
confused about
where to go.

There are no street lights to brighten this road,
no map to show us where the journey ends,
the only clue in undetermined miles.
The endless stretch of road is smaller now.
