The Adventurous Spirit …

There is a spirit that jumps impulsively towards the dangerous …
Grabbing at the unknown …

A spirit that can only be fed by experience …
All the colours and flavours of life on the edge …


Playfully winding its way through the world …
Time and space …

Hitting roadblocks …
Tripping on cracks in the sidewalk …

But always exploring … never tiring …

There is no life without this spirit …
Its presence can be weak or strong …
But its total absence is living death …
A form of utter hopelessness …

It is curiosity …
It is intellectual freedom …
It is an open loving heart …

It is thoughts and dreams and inspiration …

I have known that spirit …
Buried it …
But then found it again …

And life is all it can be now …
Jumping impulsively towards my greatest unknown …
And that is you …
