Not all those who wander

13 Sep

“Not all those who wander are lost”-JRR Tolkein

 

Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who laugh are insane
Not all those who learn to waltz
Can dance outside in the rain.

Not all the flowers love a garden
With the grass all cropped and clean
Some breathe better in the wild woods
Some , by the lake, serene.

Not all the birds, build nests
Not all that have feathers , do fly
Not all the questions have answers
Not all can stop asking “Why?”

    You express such big truths so effortlessly and beautifully Nadira…
    I am in awe of this huge gift…
    God bless…
