Autumn leaves painted the floors
with bright reds, oranges, and yellows.
Every gust of wind carried new
crisp scents and each ray of sun
wrapped its arms around me.
“I want to go to big places, big cities and travel the world”, I said.
Mellow sunshine, rustic ruins, silver moons.
In and out of old churches,
staring at pretty buildings
and ancient monuments.
Throwing coins into old fountains
in hope that our wishes would come true.
Each road, a different adventure with new cities,
fresh history and more food
for the brain
and the soul.
Memories fill up as the heart continues to grow.
It’s an endless cloud of elation like
a sky full of infinite stars.
