Sturdy wagon-folks
took months-long jolting journeys
following the wind.

  1. Indeed, they did with courage and fortitude. I know I would not have that kind of wherewithall. Thank you and have a grand weekend!

  2. Their horses were as sturdy. Glad there are resort farms nowadays that offer replica wagon rides. Great for lovers of history.

  3. and when the snow falls hard, covering up the world as we thought we knew it only moments earlier-i think of those pioneers of courage, facing untold loss forging ahead for a new life.

  4. Even a rusted old wagon wheel can be a source of beauty, memory, information, and inspiring haiku.

  5. The wagon wheel reminds me of a mandala ~ Creative photo and haiku of strength ~

  6. I have been thinking a lot lately of my great-great-great grandparents, Minerva and Daniel who led wagon trains from the East to the West… I need to remember, that I am from those genes… Sturdy. Patient. Able to listen to the wind…

  7. Can you imagine the hardship of those journeys? amazing. Loved your poem.

  8. Bravo to those courageous folks

    (✿◠‿◠)

    much love…

  9. … and when you follow the wind, you always go in the right direction!

    I am always in awe of these sturdy folks. How did they do it?
