Open your eyes
To the world around you.
The beauty taken for granted
And awed by strangers.
The sweet and enticing smell
Of new soil and unfamiliar tides.
The echo of lives surrounding you
And the invigorating soar of your heart
As you land.
The shadow of the last sowed to your feet
As you tip-toe through the next
With a map and a destination.
The need to take in everything at once
Yet one at a time
Takes over you as if
You feel there is no other time
