Poems About Adventure

Original Poems About Adventure


What does wind symbolize
but my go-somewhere-else desires?
it dries my hazel eyes
but my curiosity never tires

We mustn’t stay rooted
in the places where we nest
these die-someday bodies aren’t suited
for a lifetime of untraveled rest

Reading roads
from miles away and high
they spell words like cursive
curving beneath this black sky

dotted with stars up here
and headlights down below
I’m heading away tonight
wondering where nighttime roads go

4/11/23 by PineTreePoet, on a plane from Mexico to North Carolina


She told me she worked with clay
but that didn’t do it much justice

I left with quite a list
of all the pieces I’d miss
because my suitcase
would be packed to splits

4/9/23 by PineTreePoet. Acámbaro, Guanajuato, Mexico


The farther you and I fly
from unhindered greed
the less I taste the infection
the more my soul is freed

Let’s grow wings
and take off the suits and ties
my sour is burning and eager
to feel sunshine-mountains-alive

Maps tell us much more
about ourselves
than the places they describe
so very well

This brook could’ve been
Natty Bumppo’s favorite stream
and when I close my eyes
above it’s babbling
I’ve escaped to a frontier dream

The forest is not a graveyard
a decaying of human thrift
it’s a ‘scape of curiosity
and adventure is her gift.

Do you ever pretend
like children
you’re in an older time
when these forests were uncharted
and every ancient mountain
begged to be climbed?

I’d like to shop at a store
that sells the best memories
of Earth’s greatest explorers

Let your guide be
warm fires
and not just the fires you build
with wood
but the fires you ignite
with wonder

12/1/21 by PineTreePoet


I thought I lost my passport
such a frivolous little scare
but all my happy
memories are in there

2/27/23 by PineTreePoet


I believe there is one
meaningful path in life
and it is our egos
put asunder by creation
smoothing maps
pining for a new destination

Day to day business
is really not great business
I’d rather leave my wallet
for wild transactions

smiles and stares
in green places
with little creatures
and little breaths of creation

6/8/21 by PineTreePoet


Is it really much better
where this plane has deposited me?

there’re more cars and worries
and everyone is looking down
at their new-shoe-hurries.

4/11/23 by PineTreePoet. Exiting a flight back home in North Carolina.


Have you seen that movie?
the one where
we drive around
and get lost
in the mountains

6/23/21 by PineTreePoet


The finest threads
we can dress ourselves with
are the words we pass
in the wild places
to those who dare to come with us

10/24/21 by PineTreePoet


Find a forest
on a map
and explore it
like you explore
ambitions and dreams
and people and screens

2/11/22 by PineTreePoet


It’s bad to have more
clothes than you need
and great to have
more adventures
than you can remember

10/20/21 by PineTreePoet


Don’t forget to save
a story or two
for when we meet in person

10/21/21 by PineTreePoet


Let’s rouse
the great spirit
of adventure,
so weakened these days
by smooth roads
and soft beds.
