My lungs inflated
My shoulders broadened
Such was the magic of nature
The air, mountains and trees!
And with this beautiful tree as my crown
I am all set to travel far and beyond
Cross lakes, seas and oceans
And be what I was meant to be… The Vagabond!
This morning as my sleepy eyes looked at my Iphone, I wondered which picture I should post on Instagram (being the crazy Instagrammer I have turned into these days… oh well…). As I looked through the phone gallery, I came across this featured image which I clicked when we went to the Smokies two weeks back on a family vacation. I saw the picture and found it stunning (well yes, I am a narcissist and proudly so 🙂 but this was more because of the spectacular vista behind me. When I was clicking the picture, I didn’t realize that the tree was right behind me and looked like a crown of sorts. I only noticed it this morning when my sluggish eyes were searching for the best picture of the day for Instagram. And the moment I noticed the tree, the words just flew… the eyes were sluggish but the mind was perceptive and the result? My first poem on my travel blog! Boy, am I a happy camper today…
Here’s the full picture!
Hope you enjoy reading these lines as much as I loved writing them…
Love and hugs, Archie
One who is born with wings has many stories to tell. I was a born wayfaring story-teller! But then, how does a chirpy story-teller who also has wings on her back and wheels on her feet find a colossal audience to recount those sometimes awe-inspiring, sometimes eccentric encounters. I realised there was no other way I could narrate my tales to the world unless i started penning them down in black and white. That's how TravelwithArchie was born. I love calling myself a vagabond! One who dreams about places and then travels there to see how they look in the real world. Come, borrow my wings for a while and see the world with my lens!
