untitled ll


we are but travelers
we arrive

we check-in to our impermanent dwelling

we take-in the sights
we look, we listen, we feel, we muse
some fervent, some dispassionate
some see but do not learn
some search but do not discover
some stay in oblivion
at the end of our visit
are we fulfilled or frustrated
do we rejoice or regret

do we leave... a memory
do we leave... unnoticed...

  1. That was beautiful and I've always liked that painting. It speaks to my soul especially because of the water. The words just about took my breath away too. Thanks for this sweet post. xxoo
