Poe-A-Tree Blog Event: La Via de 'la vie'

I look out into the sea...

and see infinite beauty surrounding me...
where sky and men converge
into ONE vast reality...
and hope rises like sea bubbles
reaching ....
beckoning me to
embark in a ceaseless journey

embracing life
à bras ouverts

I read this invitation from Roy Durham of two days ago :

Who would like to take part in a blog event?

What I have in mine is a Poe-a-tree blog event, each blogger will post a verse to the poem topic and the links to the other participating blogs. Sounds like fun to me.
Here is the theme of the poem so you can start poeming a verse “I am standing on a beach looking out to the horizon, what are my thoughts”. “What do I see, what do I feel, what is calling to me.” These are the question to ask yourself and then write a verse. As many lines as you feel like...

I told him I'm not so good in poetry...but his catch was the word "fun"...

Oh Roy, this is what real Franciscan joy is all about!  

Here is the list of those who participated in this event with check them out :

forever grateful cowboy... you're right, this is FUN!

This Moment

"A single photo – no words – capturing a simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember."
“This Moment” is a ritual found on Life inspired by theWee Man adopted from SouleMama which was introduced by Sarah-Jane.

 If you have a Moment to sharepost your picture on a Friday and leave your link in the comments section. Thanks :*
