Paragliding over the Andes of Venezuela! Volar en parapente... its called! It was exhilarating, amazing, beautiful, wonderful, incredible... every positive word imaginable! And for the first time in while, I was inspired to express my experience poetically..... (check out the pics and video too!)
Swept off my feet
by the wind,
by the sunset,
Nestled in the arms of Mother Natures intense embrace
and guarded by the watchful eyes of the Divine
Weightless, carefree, burden......
Beholding the spirit of a bird
With honest wings and aimless flight
I soar in faith
That my route will connect me
Al corazon... to the heart
A la espirita... to the spirit
A la alma... to the soul
Del mundo universal... to the universal world.
The heaviness subsides
And my feet dangle above the lush jungle
Above the tranquil lakes and flowing rivers
Above warm desert plains, animals and all life.
I leave everything behind in memory
With my heart toward the sun
Without fear of the unknown
In the trustful hands of nature
That I will safely be carried home...
When it is time.
Another travelogue is on the way, I just HAD to share this experience ASAP!
