At the third milestone

Here’s my third ‘milestone’ poem, marking one of the key stages in life:

It’s taken from Shimmering Horizons (Bennison Books, 2021) which explores the theme of the journey. The book opens with a 21st century quest and closes with a contemporary odyssey or homecoming. In between are poems about legendary travellers from many parts of the world and others musing on key stages of life.

If you are curious, there is a selection on my website at

These ‘milestones’ separate the seven Parts of the book. I’m posting them one a week.


  1. love, love, love this gem, John!
