103: Discovery (1)

103: Discovery (1)

A sharp intake of breath
The quivering of young hands
Turning a blind eye to death
Running a finger through sands

The rapid knocking of one’s heart
Muscles on limbs stretched taut
The reading of a new chart
From a place, a new souvenir bought

The widening of one’s eyes
An outstretched smile or laugh
A permanent, earned kind of wise
Nostalgia surrounding a photograph

A risk taken into the unknown
Quick-witted decisions, new things
Stepping out of the comfort zone
Growing a pair of new wings
