Mary Oliver Journey Verse 1, featuring borrowed lines from the poetry of Mary Oliver


Now I am here, later I will be there. (“Life Story”)
So much to do and things I must prepare
Passport, suitcase, walking shoes, rain gear
Planning culmination of a full year

Running here, running there, excited (“The Storm”)
Wanderlust, travel dreams ignited
Itinerary, maps in backpack
Travel journal, pens to foster flash back.

-Kim Johnson, with borrowed lines from Mary Oliver’s poetry as noted
