Places to Go

There are places we should go

Before we die.

Places in our minds

Places in the sky.

But nobody gets everywhere.

So there you are,

Stuck somewhere short of where

You should go.

Short of a life and learning

You should know.

So the places you should and could have seen

Are places you’ll never know.

But…But…

Cherish the spaces you know.

Somehow you ended up here.

I did too.

So here we are

Trying to figure out how things work.

In the meantime, I hope we can agree to this:

The sky is a beautiful blue

And with the clouds makes great romance;

The Moon keeps us honest

By watching from afar;

Waves are honest

Because they never repeat their lies;

And dogs love to smell

Because they don’t believe their eyes.

 









About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."

 

The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.

 

The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
