I Trusted The North Star

As a kid,
each mile
I pedaled
away
from home
grew the world
exponentially.

My parents
helped me
grow the world
by taking
summer vacations
to national parks
all over
the lower
forty-eight
the adjacent
Canadian provinces
and a special trip
over the Pacific
to Hawaii.

When I reached
my majority
and purchased
my first car
I expanded
the world
to the limits
of my courage
by taking jobs
in nine different states
over the years.

All this growth
slowed
then sped up
on my last move
where I
stopped short
of Moab, Utah
and landed in
Albuquerque
where I met
Dianne
and stayed.
