Don’t worry, love.

Your star is too bright to dim.

Hopes, dreams and byways

Plans

and so many dreams

I have for you, sweetheart

your road is paved

with solid bricks

in graceful patters

quick, but with imagination

relaxed, yet with passion

and always forward

~

The road you follow now

has too many curves

to my liking

twists

sideways

even dead ends

but tastes differ

you sense life

and feel it your way

~

I let go of your hand

wave and smile at you

and watch while you take

a different path

with head held high

a byway

that in time

will surely become

your highway

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

This week’s photo challenge is about the future:

We spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.

In a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says FUTURE TENSE.

I’m looking forward to seeing your visions of the future, daydreams, and wishes frozen in time.

Last year I chanced upon this interesting project of The Willowman, also known as land artist Will Beckers.

Land Art artist Will Beckers creates a completely unique natural environment called The Willowman project in the forests of the Floriade. This unique project is brought to life by the Willowman’s presence himself.

This Land Art project is more than just an artwork, it is a living environment that shows how we can go to a back to a basic existence, and live by nature’s natural cycle – cradle to cradle. During the project artist Will Beckers lives and works on location in his own installation. He lives in the tree huts he has created as an architect of nature.

It is the visitor’s interaction with his surroundings that brings the installation to life. The children who visit the project will help the artist to create another enormous work which will grow and develop during the Floriade. The Willowman’s domain will be expanded and every child visiting the Floriade can be a part of this.

A special project, right?

So here is my interpretation of the Future Tense. Because we need Mother Nature to keep the future safe for our children. And we especially need the children to keep Nature safe in the future! Read Jesper’s wish for our future:

I wish that humankind would not destroy nature anymore. Jesper.

Well, Jesper, I couldn’t agree more!

Job Interview

There are times when you just have to follow your own, new road, no matter what happens to the comfortable bus you’re on. I got out and tried to take a different path, but it didn’t work out. So now I have to wait for the next ride. And you know what? It feels good to have tried. Some day I WILL get there! 😀

thorns will never block

my path towards potent bud

which will bloom next time!
