READING THE GLOBE
20 March 2006
this moment before it takes hold
Thank you for joining us - we will be departing very soon.
We are packing our suitcases and folding our maps.
Compass journey page
is a place where two travel without leaving the room.
We will jump from country to country - our course chosen by books.
One of us will travel clockwise, the other anticlockwise around the globe. Will our paths ever cross?
We will discover new places and new people. We will turn corners as we turn pages.
grey dandelion feather -
one word wonders
a longing for the impossible -
a scrapbook of collected thoughts
a song a day -
music to accompany
in spite of my impatience
faces of the people we don't know
you can stare all day at the sky
too near the surface
turn the sign to the street
words melt into arrangements of blue and black
a stitch in time
its only water and sand
where the end will begin
