One Deep Breath: Adventure

Christine, over at Quiet Paths proposed this week's One Deep Breath theme. Thanks, Christine!

My vagabond feet
grow restless in the house,
long for muddy paths.

Adventure? You grin.
Holding hands, we set forth
who knows where?

Climbing old paths,
Imagining ox carts,
going the same way,
out the Old National Pike
Westward bound.

Warm springs bathe my feet,
soothe the aches of travel:
Adventure's reward.

Beautiful. Vagabond used to be my favorite word. It disappeared. Nice to see it used again in such a wonderful way! Your first haiku pulls me in and holds me. Love it.
