April 15th Prompt

Today's prompt asks us to go on a journey.

Write a travel poem. This can be a poem inspired by the desire to not stay static and explore instead. This poem can be dedicated to the idea of driving somewhere or flying somewhere. It can be about a specific experience and anything you may have learned. Or not learned. Whatever the case, take your poem someplace outside of where it is now.

Today's poem comes to us from Robin Throne and is entitled The summer of mourning doves. About the poem, Throne writes "The call of the mourning doves is so distinct and it haunted me last summer. This poem emerged from that echo I still hear as I await their return to my potting shed."
