Where the leaves on wispy twigs almost brush the sky

where the soul of ancient trees on endless plains rule the rhythm of your daily life

where stars dance to the tune of the silent humming of the night

where the vastness of the horizon leaves you breathless for a while

where hidden back roads lead to the place where nowhere is everywhere

where the rustling of colourful leaves under your feet blend with the rich soil of the land

where the cool autumn air with its bittersweet taste touches your Being

where old folks on their wooden porches greet you with a faint smile

Where I lost my soul a long time ago

a time way before the people and their never dying tales of the land

Where I finally left behind the haunting shadows of the past

and found the greatest gift of them all
