Down, Down, Down

Leaf-In-Water-Wallpaper-1024x640

The rain falls onto my window pane 
Painting pretty pictures in lines and droplets
See it fall and swirl around the drain
Then capturing a green leaf that is in its path

I imagine a voyage upon this leaf
As the water, it pulls me down, down, down
Where will I end up or how brief?
It doesn’t matter, as I feel the water take me

Close my eyes as I feel it drift away
Unaware of the danger that’s lurking ahead
All I know, I want to get away today
I will deal with the reality of life tomorrow©

Roaming Free

lucid-dreaming

Do I control my mind or does it take charge of me
Often can’t tell the difference when I let it roam free

Images of explorations and places that I’d like to go
Dreaming in my mind of the people I’d like to know

Lands of many colors and foods that taste quite rare
Foothills and mountains, country sides and ocean air

Take along my camera and voyage to the Taj Mahal
Then next snap some photos of the great China wall

All around Europe, so many parts that I want to see
Perhaps even drop in on the Queen for mid-day tea

Around the land of Scotland and maybe the Loch Ness
And I want to get to India to buy a beautiful silk dress

On to Greece, begin to check off my list I’ve unfurled
As I start to count to the Seven Wonders of the World

Ah, Paris and Africa, have so many things I’d like to do
Espresso by the Eiffel Tower and then off to Timbuktu

There are a multitude of destinations my mind can see
Often can’t tell the difference when I let it roam free©

The Roads Most Traveled

“The most beautiful thing about the most beautiful roads is that the destination is forgotten and the journey becomes the destination itself!” ~Mehmet Murat ildan

Do not fret, I was not the driver but the passenger whilst snapping these photos. Hubby and I ran some errands together last week and these amazing scenes were caught in the journey. Just our normal routes home, but the clouds and rays of beauty could not be overlooked.

Life ~ This Way

“Life is not always perfect. Like a road, it has many bends, ups and down, but that’s its beauty.” ― Amit Ray, World Peace: The Voice of a Mountain Bird
