Day 11 - 40 ‘Miles’ From Somewhere
BDRCR 2022 Monday. (Coober Pedy SA )
I stood on a man-made hill
60 km from west of Erldunda
The morning air was nice and cool
just another springtime wonder
I could see everywhere
in every compass direction
I was the only living thing I could see
No risk of any Covid infection
I enjoyed the silence
the only thing I had to do was sit down
I cleared a spot spent 20 minutes
My bare feet on the ground.
No phone calls no signal
no one telling me what to do
Sat there alone but not lonely
enjoying the panoramic view.
I got back onto my bike
rejoined the human race
stuck behind a road train
had to fight again for my place.
Time, once again became my master
Fighting to join my group
somewhere up ahead
so I went a little faster.
I’ll never forget those twenty minutes
sitting by myself upon the hill
My mind will often wander
back inside my head there and always will.
