A few months ago I had the amazing experience of backpacking in South East Asia. Recently I’ve found my mind drifting away, reminiscing on moments of pure joy and bliss. Whilst laying in a Tree house surrounded by stars and the beautiful sea in Cambodia I felt serenity, peace, and an ecstasy I’m yet to relive upon returning to this fast paced society. I grabbed my journal, and my thoughts wouldn’t stop flowing.
Finding ants in places you shouldn’t,
These bites and bruises make us adventurers
Smiling at little things that make my heart happy
Remembering these small things are the big things
Feeling free, no mirror no make-up
Why can’t beauty be defined as such?
Laughing until our tummies hurt and gazing at endless stars
Cherishing every sunset and every sunrise
Sand in my toes, love in my heart
This is time, but it’s precious time.
Moments of slight fear, averted with humour from an amazing friend
Let it go, all those looming thoughts, it’s the prevailing that count,
It’s all going slowly, just as life should,
Taking it all in, embracing every sound,
From the crashing waves to the cricketing crickets,
Off we may go, back to our crazy minds..
But maybe, just maybe the peace may remain.
It’s too much to share, no photograph, no words can define.
Disconnected in the perfect way,
Samba sounds and serenades from the soul.
Endless trees, faces of smiles
We swam with sparkle, our bodies iridescent
The moon as bright as a beam,
One persons dream come true.
Laying in my hammock with Motown and more thoughts,
I’ve found a meaning with this endless dreaming,
Let me share this paradise of feeling free,
Pause this world a moment at a time..
Love everyone and everything
Love everything and everyone..
Whilst I patiently await the next sunrise.
