Fly away

Come with me
Let’s fly away

Forget your luggage
You won’t need any belongings

Hold my hand
I will show the world

The fresh grass will be our bed
And the sky the only roof above our heads

Trust me
I will never let you down

Don’t think twice
Together we are stronger

Just say yes
And this amazing journey may begin

Are you ready?
The stars are willing to be our guides

Come with me
Let’s fly away.

On my way home

On my way home I’m on demand
I see the rainbow in the sky
The red crab is dancing
In the golden sand

On my way home I have time
To enjoy the beautiful landscape
And I cannot believe
Mother nature has blessed me

On my way home I just breathe
The salted water on my hair
The seaweed cracking below my feet
The sky changes in a blink

On my way home I forget my pain
My eyes are craving for a miracle
Suddenly, the bush of the old tree
Is waving me again

On my way home I feel free.

To see the summer sky is poetry, though never in a book it lie–true poems flee.

Feel the blue


I will do water – beautiful, blue water.

Claude Monet

Blue suggests the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.

Before sunset

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.

There is nothing more musical than a sunset.

Claude Debussy

The water was glassy and calm, still candy-colored in the afterglow of sunset.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live, but it does come with trees, sunsets, smiles and laughter, so enjoy your day.

Debbie Shapiro

There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.

Sunset is so marvelous that even the sun itself watches it every day in the reflections of the infinite oceans!

Mehmet Murat Ildan

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

Never give up

Sometimes missions can’t be accomplished at the first time
As a consequence, we get frustrated
Suddenly, the sky is covered by thick grey clouds
Even the sun has abandoned us
But giving up is never an option
Frustrations are great opportunities to start all over again
Put yourself together, close your eyes and take a deep breath
You can do it!
Just be patient
Time is the best healer.

Sunny side up


After the storm comes the sun, they say
So we had a beautiful blue sky
The heavy drops have washed away our pain
We are ready to live your dreams again
Birds have returned to the shore
And our love has grown even more.

After work


While a few take the subway
I stroll along the sea
Big cities have skyscrapers
My town has a castle
Pigeons are everywhere
Except here!
You’ll only come across seagulls and birds
Some children play in the shopping centers
Ours have the beach as their playground
I am blessed and grateful for living in such a beautiful place.
