Off the Beaten Track


The world is mapped
with tracks
and paths,
roads,
and rivers,
ley lines,
shore lines,
latitudes
and longitudes,
timelines,
lifelines,

chronologies
and narratologies...
I will travel them, 
explore them,
love them -
for a while...
But when my soul sings
and my heart begins to smile,
I’ll be dancing with moonbeams,
sparkling with sunbeams
in the elusive
in-betweens -
drifting with dandelion clocks,
A brownian motion explorer -
no designated lines,
no stipulated times,
no “Forward” or “Back” -
Off the beaten track.
