There are places I’ve yet to visit
Streets I’ve yet to roam
Windows not looked out of
So many places far away from home
Rivers to paddle and wade in
Mountains to be admired
Meadows just there for the taking
Fields of flowers to explore
Tickets to purchase for travel
Boots for the long winding trails
Suitcases all packed and all ready
Reservations to make on the rails
In my mind I’ve been so many places
In my heart I’ve never left home
So pack your suitcases my darling
We’re leaving for places unknown

Excerpt from the book Lost and Found
Lost and Found by Jill Pontiere
Between the covers of ‘Lost and Found,’ you will find bits of yourself. For anyone having travelled life’s long, winding road, where old love wanes, new love waxes while self-love explodes, this collection of prose is meant for you. The author, Jill N. Pontiere, expresses in her most relatable writing style, what it is to experience mature love. Life is her metamorphosis, where she recognizes that nothing is static.
