We only understand the things we can relate to.
Rest, we have to hear twice!
Hace 6 años
tu ciudad no conocía,
y ahora cada calle y plaza que recorres,
son las que yo cruzaré algún día.
Cada parque, el Bioparc
o la Albufera
son sitios que ahora sólo están en
la mente de una viajera,
pero que pronto serán
los recuerdos de una pareja.
Las Fallas veré
junto a ti, mi Javier,
me asombraré con cada figura
tan bien montada,
sonreiré y te miraré
cuando vea alguna enamorada.
De tu mano iría
y tú serías mi familia
y tu ciudad,
...se volvería la mía.
we were the rebel youth,
the reckless souls running into the wild
we chased adventure
and we found beauty in the most unusual places
we believed that we could make a difference
and we still do

*Since this was written for the birthday poem challenge,
my line word count was the following:
Yet more blurs of to'ings & fro'ings,
comings & goings,
caught by insignia'ed pens stolen
from the wings of airports
that've become our lives
we travel beyond knowing,
always searching, always hoping,
writing and wandering and waiting,
but these quiet moments alone
are the ones we’ll remember most
in little pockets of enveloped peace
collected in the letters of par avion post

I know I have been away, but I have been working so hard.
I still have a lot to learn, but trust me, we have advanced so much in the last months. I hope you are proud of me. We keep battling, we keep fighting, and we are finally seeing results.
It hasn't been easy, and you know that. So, thank you again for all the support during all this years and for not losing your faith in me. I appreciate it, my friend.
Keep praying for me. I will keep you in my thoughts.
We are growing together. Let's stay strong.
Success and Love
It’s never been an option for me to travel. Leave this Country, take a flight and see some places of other countries. It was so unreal I not even took time just to check out online how it would work.
I m visually Impaired with a macular degeneration in both eyes and no possibilities so I have my challenges.
But I have a very good friend in London and he always said „ sure you can..“ and it sounds so easy. I just laughing and shake my head „no...“
„I show you..“ ..
We bought a ticket for flights
Book a hotel for two nights and that’s it...
So easy cause I /we just did it..
I also got an assistance for helping me in the airport.
The Day came closer and I still not belie...
Moving to New City,
Chapter – 3
One more fresh morning with known route to office and routine of the day had arrived. I was travelling to office with known friend which was a “Train” and few smiles on people’s faces. A lot of good morning wishes from familiar faces and even new faces which was unusual for me as compared to the gestures in my home country. A chilled morning forced me to have a coffee and a fag which indeed I did along with my team folks. There I was into strange things in which one of them was non-smokers were feeling offended for asking lighter and another was an elegant angel smoking. A khaki green chino and a maroon T with white sneaker made her to lo...
എഴുതി തീരാത്ത കഥകളും
എഴുതാൻ മറന്ന കാവ്യവും
ഒരു ഏകാന്ത പഥികന്റെ യാത്രയും
ജ്വലികാത്ത ദീപം പോലെ
അറിയാതെ പോകുന്നു ഈ ഉലകം...
My plans for the future is to travel more.
I can't stand being in one place for too long.
I hate how there are many places in this world and I might never get to see them.
I will do my best for a couple of years and work hard.
I will collect money so that I can travel.
I want to capture scenes with a camera.
I want to meet people from different cultures and get to know them.
I dont want to leave this word without getting to know it.
Travelling isn't just about exploring new places and have fun ! Its not just about making new memories and experiencing new things !
Its even about having freedom above everything else.
Freedom of thoughts , freedom to explore and discover new things , freedom to get away from your comfort zone and try something new.
Travelling helps us freed from everything that is stopping us.
Stopping us from moving forward , holding us back to our past life , holding us from a adventurous and a beautiful present and future.
Freedom to face our life long fears with great strength and courage.
More than passion its freedom of soul from all the hold backs .
Travelling is more than just fun and passion.
He pasado un sábado sin verte,
aburrido para mi
hasta que un "Hola cariño"
aceleró mi latir
y por escrito me hizo sonreír.
Te he extrañado todo el día
y mañana será igual
hasta que me escribas
que a tu casa has llegado ya.
Yo saltaré como hoy
a contestar tu mensaje
y a preguntarte con mi voz
cómo estuvo tu viaje,
si me has extrañado,
y si al final de la noche...
con tu salvadoreña has soñado.

His power was loquacious Mercury,
Spilling from his lips freely and unendingly so,
Tantalizingly close yet torturous.
It ran from your fingertips,
Always allowing you to see it
But never to posses it.
He was the same.
But always fleeing something.
And unwilling to be hurt again,
He always fought,
Scrambling away from his own shadow,
Which to him stood twice as tall as he.
Standing right in front of you one moment,
But at the first sign of danger,
By the next moment,
He was on a plane to somewhere new,
FALL IN LOVE WITH PLACES NOT HUMANS 💓
Oh My My you're so stunningly beautiful, I said while gazing at her from far away. With every step I took towards her my blurred vision of her surreal gorgeousness became clearer and I could feel the warmth of new love budding in me again. This is it, that moment has come. I'm at the gate and she's welcoming me with open arms. As I run inside , I can sense her eternal peace and spiritual tranquility.
I WAS IN LOVE AGAIN. THIS TIME WITH A BEAUTIFUL FORTRESS!
Like a long drive taken by a dew drop.
I started my travel with a happy hopes flying my way out in the sky .
In a sheer fear of being destroyed.
I continued and protected myself against all the hurdles and learnt to be strong ,
And I travelled a long way to drop- on a story stay.
Which left my hopes letting dropped
And dreams shattering
But even today as a little droplet
I still thrive for a leafy way.
A lonely soul travels from
one place to another
In search of a dream
like no other
It was another fine day
in the land of dreams
He had got his chance
that's what it seems
He was in a state of
confusion like always before
To be happy with it
or look for something more
A wise person advised him
live and enjoy the moment
Do not care about others
as nothing is permanent
I am leaving the shores to travel deeper, within the heart of the forest.
I let the fear of the unknown consume me, shackling me to the myth,
I see the gloomy sky, I see the silent forest, rivers running to its downfall,
All reminding of the fear of being alone,
So here I am starting a journey of my own, to explore, to overcome my insecurities and my fear,
To conquer and trevive myself.
