At the risk of being accused (damned if do or don't!) of boring you with pedantic detail, Sandman, I have never owned a home and don't wish to: after flying the nest, I've always rented - preferring council/social housing as I don't like capitalism, frankly.

So I'm now living in my 16th home - without owning any of them.

The state should own and rent-out all housing - with some inequality such that folks have the incentive of an economic ladder to climb, via what I've termed "Global Regulationism".

Non-travel poems are "elsewhere", D - under Conclusions; the full title is "Walkabouts: travels and conclusions in verse".

If I'm still alive, I was thinking of trying my hand at digitally illustrating some of those without pics..?

Self publishing has been interesting: I've learnt the basics of desktop publishing, sound recording and engineering, printing, fonts, book binding, etc.

Well that work sounds like epic proportions. All I have for suggestions is a forward that could include details such as disease encounters, political and personal information not found in travel guides. Playing up the facts and not the poetry could make this more appealing to publishers. Separate the 'poems' not related to travel elsewhere.
Climb every mountain, fill every niche. :^)

The uniqueness of this thread is that I'm adding pics to the travel poems which, to complete, could take quite some time, I'm afraid, Donuel:

A trip to the north of Sweden; another to Berlin (my first and only visit included going through Checkpoint Charlie in 1988), Paris and Nice/Monaco; Manchester > New York > LA > Tijuana > LA > Hawaii > Manchester; and a limited version of my trip from London back to what was then my home in Sydney - Mumbai > Gulmarg and Srinigar? > Kathmandu > Bali > Uluru > Adelaide > Ballarat > Echuca > Sydney.

And, from Sydney whilst staying with my family, a flight up to Cairns to visit Kuranda again; and a return flight to Fiji.

Plus several day trips in Lancashire to complete Part 3 of WAV - "Walkabout Lancashire".

For what it's worth, since publishing in 2003, I have only been to 2 new nations, as stop-overs when visiting family in Sydney - Qatar and UAE. I have, however, already been back to some nations with the photos above.

Ouch - I hadn't copped a "Bucko" since my schooldays in the suburbs of Sydney!

Traditions exist where folks have been impressed by how their forebears did things, and I don't regret reading/studying Wordsworth, Blake, Shakespeare, etc., before attempting my own verse; that said, as I said just above, there are structures that I have not seen anywhere else in my collection - e.g., in "Wise"
it's the second last syllable that rhymes.

I am sure you have explored and discovered details nearly every little furrow. To gaze into one type of furrow imo means to be trapped by it, to live in that is a grave and not a farmers crop of diverse beauty and food for thought.
Don't denigrate Rambling - Bucko. That man has rambled means that he has inherited the Earth and did not remain in a valley in Africa to die. The Gettysburg address was the ramblings of a man on a train headed to Gettysburg.
With all due respect you are an expert organizer. Organization may fool the eye but not the heart. I prefer artists.
Example: your search for other people's rules and methods prove they are not your own like a singer who copies other people's style but have no voice of their own..Finding your own voice is not an easy thing to do. It is as hard as throwing away what you think you know and beggining anew. What you do is still better than one line inspirational corporate posters like "Hang in there kid".

Donuel: before I sat down to write poetry, I read a lot from the anthology of English verse and, in my collection, tried to use lots of different structures, as well as coming up with 1 or 2 of my own.

As for "in the moment," it's true that I have sat on the 230 poems and songs I self-published in 2003, but I have kept working at it - adding notation to the songs/Chants from Walkabouts and, as per this thread, photos from going back to the places I wrote about with my bridge camera.

And, just a few days ago, I have started adding a "Location on Google Maps" link at the foot of each blog/poem, in case folks are impressed enough to investigate towards their own visit.

That said, in agreement with you, I think, re "I was irrevocably tied to my feet on a path", I also feel folks should stick to the path rather than ramble anywhere - better for wildlife, etc.

And also fine with me if others wish to post their verses here.

Above ground where ther is more sky I stand on top of ‘the mountain of perspective’.
This mountain ‘starts off’ at the apex where there is infinite perspective
but once I move down away from this apex, the degree of perspective drops away.
As we move further down the mountainside I end up in an ever-deepening gully
The walls on each side rise up higher and higher, cutting off otherb routes.
At the top I could see in all directions and horizons went hundres of miles
At the bottom, I had no more freedom, I was irrevocably tied to my my feet on a path.
Underground in my minds eye a tunnel of infinite length and cracks and tunnel furrows.
Every furrow is infinite, and there are infinite numbers of them ye I see but one.
To gaze into it means to be trapped by it, to live in that furrow ignoring others

This reality is as an endless array of possible view none of which are essentially true,
and each of which excludes awareness of other views.
The only essential truth is the truth of the tunnel, which contains all the furrows,
If you can see all the furrows, then you can see how none of them are evrything
From mountain top to underground I see how with my eyes most information is lost.
I need new eyes beyond the sky and space and time to see the overwhelming truth.
