Poetic Thursday: That’s Why

Happy Tuesday. It’s time again for poetry with Pam and kitties at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is the photo inspiration for this week:

Although it’s felt a bit like that recently in our corner of southeast Virginia, I can’t imagine actually being in that setting.

Here’s my poem:

That’s Why

Yes, it was hot and it was dry,
And, yes, you’re probably wondering why.

Why was I there on that mountain of sand?
Was  I just trying to prove I’m a man?

But when the day comes and I rock in a chair,
I’ll smile and remember  that I was there.

Looking back won’t make me sad;
no need to say “I wish I had”.

But those rocking chair days will have to wait.
Adventure is calling, and it’s a date.

~These Days Of Mine~

  1. Walking through the desert is definitely not on my wish list but I’m sure there are those who would enjoy the challenge. I love the variety of poetry I’ve read today from this photo’s inspiration! Well done my friend….no regrets is a good theme!


  2. YES!!! Ready for an adventure, and I agree that a walk through the desert is not on my list. GREAT poem.

  3. Fitting poem! I’d rather ride through the desert than walk. 😉

  4. Well done!! I like your take on it!

  5. I wonder what will be next for him ?
    This particular adventure shown here wouldn’t last very long for me !!
