scenic route

A simple lust for simple things
Burning grass shedding its past
Smoke sending signals to destiny
Asking gods to prepare a feast
A harvest of dreams
Heirs to the past
Conduits to the future
The journey within a paradise
A parade of chameleons and dragons
Colourful feathers ushering a new dawn
Sailing the limits of my conscious
Entertained by laughing waters
Rapids revving up the motion of the canoe
Ripples in the pool
Reminding me of life
Fragile by nature
Here today, gone in an instant
Taking the scenic route
Satisfied, satiated, sated
Appreciation is heaven
