A Special Place Within

Updated on November 21, 2012
we search the hills, by a water fall
we search the hills, by a water fall
chasing rainbows
chasing rainbows
across wide oceans
across wide oceans
our minds are free
our minds are free
approaching storm
approaching storm
beauty found along the way
beauty found along the way
We search the skies in the quest
We search the skies in the quest
to look across the land
to look across the land
an end to the search for another day
an end to the search for another day
Joyful conclusion
Joyful conclusion

Beyond the scope, of the distant highway,

and a closer home, where we long to be,

There is a place, we keep deep within us,

found in the hearts, that of you and me.

Our worldly travels, may take us afar,

though we may reach, for the furthest star,

We need not wonder away, or to roam,

in this search, to find, just who we are.

No matter the depths, to which we may dive,

or to the heights, at which we then arrive,

Never to achieve, the greater fond goals,

above all elegance, to embrace our roles.

Finding clues, for quests, on which we may trek,

our vulnerable states, that we now do inspect,

Without any hesitancy, and nothing to protect,

we may follow leads, in which we might reflect.

Understanding a truth, has a way sometimes,

to be revealed, in the simplest of rhymes,

While we each, to rest, in the golden sunshine,

on a tropical island, in the warmest climes.

North to Alaska, or on southern shores,

that evasive old enigma, so much implores,

Challenging the greatest, of all minds to be,

releasing its grasp, that we may be free.

Some day we may stumble upon the facts,

to astonish the brightest, it so impacts,

The object we sought, the holiest of grails,

much closer to home, in its circling trail.

It has been with us, held within our mind,

a complex connection, of each heart, divine.

Now, no more searches, on our highway,

Is a joyful conclusion, for us to find.

all rights reserved and under copyright

the search to end within our hearts.
the search to end within our hearts.

      Once again, so beautiful and heartfelt. And I absolutely love your photos. The sky is so interesting and holds so many secrets. : ) The first photo reminds me of a place in Jamaica that Craig and I once visited "Enchanted Gardens" - what a beautiful spot that was, so thanks for the reminder.
