any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
What a joyful way to view life. Wonderful and happy poem!
Dancing with dolphins - pure joy - maybe dreaming of travel is the most important
that's what travel does - it kicks us out of that sameness that can become a prison for our thoughts and actions.
A nice ending, and so true...
Isn't it true, Sumana! Part of being human is desiring to see other places besides our own. Some desire and need more adventure than others, but everyone yearns to see somewhere else!
Travelling opens our eyes, even if its the same sun, moon or sky ~ Sometimes the cosmic dance sounds different when you are in another country and time zone ~ That's the craziness of life, smiles ~
And sometimes travel becomes a competitive sport and we see places only through our cameras or iPhones instead of just letting it fill our souls. Interesting and thought-provoking take on the prompt!
There are indeed different ways to travel. Some see it as a competition while others are more ready to open their souls.
Same moon, sky, etc. but if one doesn't "And some would delve deepInto their soulListening to the songOf consciousness" then I'm not sure what good travel does.
Your last stanza brought clarion focus.../entreating them to pen their eyes/to the cosmic dance/in their whole being/through countless births/ for yes, our greatest journeys are always spiritual, always in lesson with each lifetime. Travel on the planet does enrich our perspective, broaden our horizons but it all pales compared to the internal voyages.
An exciting read.
smiles... you know i wouldn't mind a dance with a mermaid...just saying... smiles
So much beauty everywhere to be seen......if we traveled our whole lifetime, we could not see it all.........(this is why I watch nature and travel movies, hee hee).
Beautiful...I can't imagine staying in one place. The world has so much to show us.
A great attitude about travel and its wonders are yet to be seen. http://seeworldhere.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/ironsides/
ha ha ...thats the craziness......beautiful!!
I must say I think it would be awesome to see the earth from "the moon soil".
A wonderful adventure--beautiful write!
I like this, Sumana. How true is it that the best journey we can have is the journey of self-discovery, and one need not travel to exotic places (though that for sure can be quite exciting and educational) to attain the self. :-)
Love your summary at the end. Yes indeed, this is life!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
