Stray Thought 7

“I agree,
curiosity is a very good thing,
but how does ‘what if…’ become
a butterfly of transformation,
a beacon, a shining star
that beckons you on,
allowing you to navigate
the deepening waters
of the rest of your life?”

    My goodness.. how! This poem takes me to the edge of mainland Europe from where the original Portuguese discoverers set sail to find a sea route to India, not sure if they’d ever come back alive. It is strange how I connected this to your poem. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Found that very romantic! I guess your stray thoughts are open to interpretation and render itself differently according to the reader’s moods! Loving your series

    I’m very sorry, Namratha, but I can not get to your blog to leave a return comment. My sincere apologies.
