Adventure for me is a patch of tulips.

Adventure for you is the beginning of a thousand novels in your smiles
It is the chapters turned over with every blink of your eyes
It is pieces of many stories inked into your skin in indecipherable signs
Your lips speak of life in magnificent tales
I see it in the lines set deep in your face
Like warrior paint
Adventure for you is a forest of wildflowers
Untameable, bold and beautiful
But for me it is a manicured patch of tulips
It is smaller than whole fields, managed by gentle hands
But it is no less of a force
I do not turn chapters with every blink
But I’ll stir up a word
And each word will resound with the power you heard
In one of the novels that your tears told
Because adventure for me is a tender-hearted story
My face may not read aloud a tale of strength and might
But I hope it reads light. I hope it reads you light.
