In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “On the Way.”
No matter how many plane journeys have passed, looking out the window and being utterly and completely captured by the beauty of the skies is something that never loses its magic. Maybe it’s the Heavenly clouds, or the rainbow of colors, or the sun behind the clouds exuding the perfect glow, the beaming lights of the city below against the dark skies, maybe it’s the thought of defying gravity and nearing the stars, or simply the liberating feeling of being far removed from problems and concerns and being rapt in momentary peace. Whatever it is, this is an “on the way” moment that sure holds my gaze.
Thanks for visiting! Cheers!

A winding path lies before,
A river’s bends it wore.
The journey started slows for none,
the sands of time fall one by one.
Each step creates a ripple,
Changing the course of fate a little.
The inner voice served as guide,
But a vision did it rarely provide.
What laid ahead remained unknown,
Amidst the dusk loomed the dawn.
The fire within raged ablaze,
Keen to clear the daze.
In the chase to see the end,
The present has condemned.
The moment that is passing by,
is saying its last goodbye.
Standing firmer on the ground,
Unveiled an image so profound.
The sight that bore before,
Revealed a glowing shore.
Lost in the charm ahead,
Tears conveyed the unsaid.
For once the haste ceased to be,
The heart broke free.
Basked in the warmth of the Sun,
The weight of the world becomes undone.
The chorus of the birds beam,
At the emerging of the sea bream.
The swooshing rhythm of waves abound,
the voice within calmly drowned.
Standing before this foaming sea,
and I, anew.
