Thoughts of a Traveller

Immersed in Basho,
a darkening world dissolves
in haiku footsteps.

On mirrored water,
dancing Boatmen bring lightness
to poetic thought.

Lavender odours
quash the stench of terrorists,
and, in the reading,

nature brings reason
for participating in
each given moment.

Travelling is the best, immersing oneself in other cultures. I will never be too scared to visit other countries. Paris has always been my happy place, and will continue to be. Londoners too are strong people and I give them a gigantic hug.❤️😘

Nature is the mother and father of all art. If you don’t connect and love nature your creations become empty.
