where my dreams meet my world
i want to be
the spaces are sometimes filled
with pieces of beauty.. unnamed and unlearned
other pieces cloud my sun
this is not how i should belong
i need the strength of your sunrise
but my eyes too often stray
to the dark clouds that surround

so i feel for hope that is soft
and is true like the blood in your veins
You feel faith of harm that hold your name
but im not yours and you don’t know my name
so please respond to your grave
my sun is learning what i need

so have you already gone

are you destructing this with doubt
can i sit back and watch your vacant glance
your mirrors break just like searching rain
now i cant stop that feeling of then
so let this sun become my place

now im wondering where it goes
where we go
where I go
how to go…..don’t go
don’t feel stupid for believing…
maybe now your seeing…….fly a little further today

    Another utterly stunning capture Michael. I had plans to head back to NZ to capture the wilderness there that I couldn’t visit this time, but maybe a trip closer to home might be edging its way onto the agenda. Thanks for posting some beautifully inspiring work.

  • ooh as someone that is contracted to Tourism Tas im happy to hear that:))
    But i tell you what, if you have tickets to NZ id be MORE than happy to look after them for you :)

    nah – sorry – tickets to NZ got used to bring me back this time. nice try though :-), but interesting to hear that you’re contracted to tourism office. do you mind if i contact you offline on that one when i’m ready to start researching a bit more? one reason i’m looking at other options aside from NZ just now is that an injury prevents me lugging gear too far afield just at the moment and i’d rather drive on our alpine roads than theirs.

  • dam :) ill get over there soon enough.
    Yeah of course, more than happy to help out if i can.
