Traveler On the Backroads

· a slight breeze rustles

in the canopy above

as i walk this quiet

country road in thought

a stone fence keeps me

company that must’ve

been made many years

ago and up ahead near

a bend in the road is

a small farm quite old

with weathered wood

from standing strong

against the winter winds

and the unforgiving

summer sun

here with the breeze

caressing my face

and the trees

serenading me so

i can finally let go

here i feel at peace

here i can walk and

feel whole

here i can get

in touch with

my soul 🍁🍂💓

~ poem “Song of the Soul” by Michael Traveler, author/poet.
