Inspiration and Expiration, and Sea and Sky.


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

Hangliders and paragliders 029

I really do aspire
To be a flyer, higher –
These are some things you may see
Viewing from our property …

Hangliders and paragliders 027

Inspiration’s breathing in,
Expiration breathing out;
If more ‘in’ you fail to win,
You’ve expired, have no doubt!

Hangliders and paragliders 019

Inspiration will abate
Once you reach expiry date,
With an early death, your fate
Is to have become ‘the late’.

Hangliders and paragliders 020

Keep then, all that will inspire,
For the longest time you may:
These are things will lift you higher
At the ending of your day.

Hangliders and paragliders 024

Watching these is true inspiration for the adventurous, and for the imagination.
