“On Travel: Past and Present” – Muntinlupa, August 2015

young ladies,

travel in

your youth

and live

sans regret:

broaden your

horizons

beyond the

known;

open your

eyes

to a

world

just aching

and longing

and begging

to be

explored!

 

consider:

a cup

of coffee

as you

watch

the hustle

the bustle

of paris;

sip wine

pick grapes

taste life

in bordeaux;

pick a

sprig

of lavender

as you

meander

though the

provençal hills.

 

wear your

shoes out

dancing

in cannes;

say a

prayer

or two

in lourdes;

in lisieux,

light a

candle

to see

you through.

 

and grow

as you

drift

from town

to town

gaining strength

building richness

of mind

of body

like fine

wine,

and come

home

wiser

stronger

better;

no regrets.
