Romancing The Canvas
There are times when we need to leave the safety of the harbor and answer the beaconing of the future in the horizon where the skies kiss the seas ~
The unfamiliar arched skies and the daunting blue of the ocean may appear uncertain, and there may be no written guarantee across the seas but we take out our anchors from our sanctuaries, take the chance and sail anyway.

There are moments in life when we have to leave the roads that are too familiar.
It is our human nature to explore uncharted terrietories.
There’s that part in us that needs and longs for the change of landscapes.
And so I leave the paths that are safe and take a detour, stray away from my every day roads, throw the maps and just went ahead to get thrilled with things new.
We all need to face our fates at a certain point and take that arduous trek in the desert to fulfill the only obligation we have in this life to reach our destinations.
It is important that even how far the distances we reach in our travels, we need to be in touch with the isles of our harbor, and the trails that would lead us back to the roads we took that brought us to this moment.
No matter how far the distance I travelled away, there’s always a fine strand that links and ever draw me to my oasis. Poetry and the arts is the oasis of my soul, and I will always be back here, now and again, to drink and dine in the bounty of its inspirations.
. . . You secretly filled my luggage with memories to last me the many years that I am away. You equipped me with fuel enough to survive me a lifetime.
You are my daily dose of life,
My daily drop of hope.
You are the reason I am moving on,
And why I need to cope.
You are my oasis
In this life’s desert
So I can stand up
My love, you are the oasis of my heart, and I will always be back in your sanctuary, in the comfort and warmth of your presence for it is you who makes my journey worthwhile.
