Brief Encounter

Walk under vanilla skies,
expectations fall behind,
tall shadow conveys surprise,
beauty perfectly designed.

Connection ties to then bind,
excitement flies up so high.
Feel love fill body, soul, mind,
endless joy gleams from our eyes.

Immense figure, wanders free,
standing taller than a tree,
lowered head, bows towards me,
admiration turns my key.

Encounter that came by chance,
swirled emotions, made hearts dance.
Inhaled vision, one last glance,
exhaled, watched hooves swiftly prance.

  3. Tending to have many options we will loose the ability to differentiate between individual and people start to look the same.

    So for me, people must creates their own destiny.
