Dreaming of a Discoverer…..
Where thought-desire River has a body
A body full of passion and emotion
A mind full of wildest imagination
The naturalness and nakedness of one’s solitude
A relationship between solitude and togetherness
A fundamental, essential truth
And a mystical journey of the soul
A journey to serenity!
