Wanderlust

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

This short poem was very loosely devoted to Odin; or at least, it began as a piece of poetry for him, and I think turned into an ode to his followers.



According to Merriam-Webster,

wanderlust is a “strong longing for

or impulse toward wandering”.

It is - to me, to you - much more than that

for it is not enough to wander. It matters less

where one one may wander to, and more

to where their mind may wander

along the way. It wanders not in steps, but in leaps

and bounds, nine nights out of ten. And on the ninth,

it comes down from the tree and puts its hat

upon the hook and rests, for just a night.

At times, the mind must wander home,

and when there is no home to wander to

it finds a palace along the road.
