somewhere in me is that adventure gene,

the intrigue of exploration

ill use the Earth on which to lean

and always want for more


my mind runs off

each limb following clumsily after

my dreams outgrowing me

always starting a new chapter 


a compelling argument with myself

begging to fly

talking to Trees, sitting among Flowers

longing for a piece of the Sky


'wander off'

the moon beckoned to me 

and so through the forest ill run 

only for the Sun to see

This poem is lovely...The thing which I love most about it is the rhyme pattern with intervals...
