Our spirits are such they can never be contained,
wherever, whenever they travel...
Bursting forth with love, art, music, verse, beauty; harmonious with others and nature...
beginning with a dream, embraced by our souls, brought to fertilize...
So that life will not perish.

Lovely Petra. It's simple, yet says a lot. I know you didn't mean it to be a haiku, but there's definitely a lot going on in its brevity.

Love it.

K. :)

This post really touched my soul!

Thank you, my friend!

Happy Monday and have a fabulous week!

Hi, K. I wanted to weave the images with the idea of Columbus sailing because his spirit controlled his desire to reach the Indies. It takes much bravery and adventure to sail unknown territory. I couldn't do it! ;))

Then thought of how our creative spirits can create such love and beauty, and overcome, hopefully, the destruction and eventual death of the human race. Not to get too melodramatic, but the way things are going, I'm truly concerned for our future generations.

Thank you so, Ron! I'm so happy that it moved you. In its simplicity, I'd hope to pack a punch! :))
