Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Journey – Sept. 2, 2021

Stretching into the distance,

Black desolate tarmac

Dust devils dancing

As the kookaburra laugh

Breaks the dry silence

He has travelled many a road,

Salt bush and emus

Life’s companions here

Heat suffocating as

Blow flies sing a serenade.

At times he detests these roads,

Unbroken reminders of what is left behind,

What once had been.

But there is solace to found,

In the infinity of the outback.

Wiping his brow he strides on,

Eyes fixed on horizon’s fireball.

Time to roll out his swag,

Time to settle for the evening

And sleep beneath stars shining for an eternity.
