Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

There are travels unrealized
many adventures in the highs and lows
whispering across my thoughts
like the gentle breeze through palm trees
in paradise, existing only in my mind's
eye as visions of turquoise waves
kiss the sand's goodbye
like an unrequited love-

lost in the byways & highways
of impossible dreams
breathless like smoke or moonbeams
rising when the sun sets
yet, still the road less traveled beckons me
for there are songs to sing
resounding, like the symphony of hooves
pounding across the Serengeti-

like words to paper
more than just black and white
oh but they speak - the colors of life
of women carrying baskets
like crowns bowing under it's weight to rivers -
parched like lips without a kiss
yet, each sway of their hips
bespeak of joy wrapped in traditions
and weathered descendants
with ageless souls-
awaiting the rains to
stir like a heart with new love-
