Fernweh
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

I long for the life of a wanderer,

Travelling distant places.

I want to walk on paths less taken,

To discover places unknown.

I want to run around without a care,

While the wind blows through my hair.

I want to answer the call of the mountains,

And embrace the happy air.

I want to feel the waves,

As they crash to the shore beneath my feet.

I want to hear the roar of the waterfall, 

The rush of the river,

As the grains of sand,

Slip through my hands.

This life is all I have,

I want to soak in every experience,

That each journey has to offer.

I sift through the sands of time,

With a longing for distant lands.


Fernweh : desire to travel, a longing for far-off places

Language : German


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge and the National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) . I’m trying to weave poems around unusual words or words from other languages that are just beautiful.
