Zest for new journeys



zest for new journeys
begins with seeding each day,
a verse, joyful thoughts

a verse, joyful thoughts
spread white wings on morning coast,
ready for new day 

ready for new day,
sun, wind, stormy days, grey clouds,
fly the horizon

fly the horizon
with keen eyes and eager hands, 
zest for new journeys

  22. Thanks for sharing this uplifting series of images. To embody the horizon, the coast, the clouds, the sun, the rain, the storms and calm, as well as everything imaginable and unimaginable, invites one to open the heart and allow energy to flow freely. Feel how it is to lose yourself in what you love.
