Goodbye, New Friend I can’t BelieveIt’s timeTo sayGoodbye We just metThree daysNowMy flame for youBurns fierce Like the pepperyPunchOf local dishesYour zesty spiritHas me craving for more Yet, I must goReboundTo a lifeOf contractsAnd compulsions I don’t know if we willSee each other againBut you are nowA permanent part Of my soul

Wanderlust The world’s too small toRestrict ourselves to what’s immediatelyAround us.Vacations canExpand our view and inform ourLove of diversity.

Yet, when I grantany freedomto step upyou surrender to the struggle too soon. I accept blameIt’s my faultI didn’t rouse your rightto spur a spiritof discoveryto developyour separate skills.

I like to dabble in photography, but I haven’t had the energy to dedicate much time to the efforts. Here’s a sample of my work from the past:
