Longing For Those Enlisted In Serving America/ A Yearning Rhyme

Too far, too many miles away,

As night falls my heart makes itself known.

Friends say, You can hear their voice,”

“You can see their face on your phone.”

Yet without that human touch,

There is no spark to strike a flame.

a away

How I long for the day,

When that airplane sets you down.

Missing you is agony.

Seconds stretch into eternity.

My arms reach out.

The distance is too far.

a cooberRobert Earl Howells On the Way to Oz Nat Geographic Adventure:

There is 1 person per every 2 square miles in Australia’s 1925 mile wide outback. From December to March it’s too hot to travel through the “red rock gorge” If you’re gonna live in Coober Pedy you’re gonna live underground ( underground hotel featured in photo). The “Desert Cave Hotel” offers rooms 150 feet beneath the surface of the earth. Ayers Rock glows brilliant red giving the aborigines cause to believe it is holy. There are 15 foot long “Sweet Water” crocks running the rivers in Kakadu National Park making friends with huge monitor lizards and komodo dragons. How’d ya’ll like to live there? Don’t ask. I’m not going!!!!!!
