The Wanderer


The sun surrenders to the sky

pulled by the mountains, the sea,

the magnetic earth

finger painting colors

evoking awe and passion

giving birth to shining stars

and the glow of a complete, alluring moon

So too, the Wanderer let’s go to what is and is overwhelmed by a pallet of emotion.


The aspens tower above

out-growing scars of the past,

learning and growing

witnessing far and wide, the truth

the view of the path below

glowing gold in celebration

playful in the light of the sun.

Connected to the earth and to each other.

So too, the Wanderer seeks and is seen, entwined with all that is alive.


Look at the immensity of the mountains

their great mass

the intricacy of the passes and ridges and peaks and valleys

exuding strength, creating

endless possibilities to explore and wonder

Summit views, valley immersions

a majestic home.

So too the Wanderer is on the path, lost in visions and depths, and found.


The creatures full of action and purpose

soar, scurry, creep, crawl, and swim.

embracing elements

satisfying needs

listening, speaking, moving

digging, building, eating, mating, killing, birthing

Instinct trumps rules.

So too the Wanderer is driven to action, to nourish the soul and make love to essence.


The jungle buzzes with intense vibration of life

falling to decay, recycling back to life

the rain drums the surface of the blue lake

each drop making a difference to the depths

and settling into a true glass mirror

Like the jazz of weather whirling through the rhythm of seasons, the Wild Wanderer finds a home in nature and always returns.


Wild, questioning, seeker of truth

Full of wonder

Curious explorer.

The Wild Wanderer.
