War is an invention,
Monotony is mechanical,
Nature knows none of it.
In the world
There are no refugees,
Or, all are.
We are more of being,
Less of human;
Human ages, like a calendar
Being doesn’t, like nature.
In natural thoughts,
Not in lifeless words.
Talking about peace?
Working on its homonym!
Walk the talk. Please.

It was an unforgettable experience and though there were very hard times, I discovered a precious connection to nature I shall never lose.
I can see you feel the same.

I think of it as a blessing, if I am not able to enjoy my company, others cannot, it is as simple as that. Your connection with nature is actually a connection with self.… Read more »
