Drenched In Mountains

Only a few more days
before I traverse again the great hips of
this land,
drown my lungs in perfumes sailing from
the earth’s breath,
in nameless scents that have yet to fall into
words I perspire something like God at work.

Only a few more days before I ravage the
sinuous roads and drink from the sun’s back,
skating past diamond rice fields that frame a
peasant's dream,
I let my heartbeat drum with wedding rings on
shadows that spread wide like palm leaves in
prayer.

Here in this unmitigated plain that repeats
eternally over obsequious jungles and plants
made from rock,
it all seems to sing in sounds only familiar
to prophets and sages dressed in cloth fetched
from truth’s fashion,
I find myself repeatedly invented
to be painted by a stadium of rich colours,
sagacious with the abundance of the wild
hauling my spirit wayward.

Here, where I can sit unperturbed with clouds,
mice and grandfather gorges
then feel the mighty gaze of dinosaur canyons
lean into me until every great mystery dances
manically, yearning to unveil itself brazen and alive,
like summer mounting paradise,revelations bloom from
inside the lips of each lotus flower,
cascading over the barrenness of my side road meditation.

All until I am nothing but another being
breathing in golden moments, drifting in
harmony with the wild jasmine and bohemian
sky.

How rich is this nature that owns me now,
what price could free me from this bark and
this leaf, this space littered with lakes of
whispering peace?

Only a few more days until I find again the
perfect place to dream
from somewhere within the hive of my
every sensation, living forever wrapped around
magic motorbikes drenched in mountains.

But if u got time, some extra in pocket, and are at crossroads, do something useful, u moron. Arabic courses in Cairo, 450usd/month incl. lodging. Ending up in Pattaya is existential suicide.

A lot of folks falling off balconies in Pattaya .... it’s like the twilight zone that place from what I read on thai blogs.

Not sure what I will do.

Please remain sensible. Idolizing that moron with the the Taliban doesn’t sound sensible to me. Take care. I am taking a break from forums.

Read a recently published NatGeo feature on Peloponnese, Greece. Quite enticing actually. Throw in a golden visa, I may have to join Peter the Pompous.
