the world closes
to encompass
places reached on my daily walks
hill, river and road
safe and familiar
to faltering feet

but in my heart
I walk all those other places
pictures from around the world
take me to high mountains
of snow and ice
that I feel in my bones

sunsets firing the sky
above alien beaches
dancing in the streets
of far eastern lands
sailing seven seas
with a cat called Bailey

and everywhere people
the faces of humanity
hands reaching hands
around the globe

end of the road
