CONTEMPLATION

Tea Garden

In this world
it is easy to travel
to new places and fascinating landscapes.
What matters is
that we lift the veil from our eyes,
open ourselves to a new voyage of perception,
and arrive in paradise.

Beautiful in words and the pictures brings a certain tranquility to mind, a stillness of air and a place devoid of sounds...
