Lured by the romance of travel
I left behind a colourless past
For an accidental promise of a saturated future

Buying into the life peripatetic
We rode the rails
Chased by contrails
Warmed by the haze of highway mirages

Walks sometimes broke into trots
Even into tearing sprints
Embracing this unencumbered impulse into the night

Weaving our way overland
I hitched my humble wagon to his
Home and chariot at once
Keeping me still as I saw upon a point of light ahead

But the months turned grey
As he denied the spirit of his words
And the courage once liberated grew heavy

As he said, this was always your choice
I extended my hand, and you ran with it
My love for what is won’t change
And you need to be here for what is to you

He was in fact the excuse I needed
Sobered by this painful correction
The corner I thought I had once turned
Revealed only more unknowingness

Now out the window my gaze falls
Sweeping the landscape as fast as the wheels skate the tracks
Hurriedly capturing the fleeting vibrant hues of the wandering life

Artist Bio

  • It’s with this empathetic quality that Carolina imparts into her work, making it so warm and full of love and spirit that drew me to her illustrations. Even at its most simplistic and stylized, there is a gentle and inviting grace, that I imagine is not unlike the charm of Carolina herself.
