Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words



Alleys of Kaleiçi, the historic city center of Antalya, Turkey

I will pursue my

dreams again of visiting

a lot many places


I will go around

again exploring places and

various cultures


I will wander in

those alleys again trying to

find lost history


But this time, I will

be thankful that am lucky

to travel at all


I will cherish each

and every moment out

than ever before


I will act as a

responsible tourist in

each way possible


Linking to dVerse MTB: Stream of Consciousness Writing




Cloudy skies


Were they ready to talk peace?


  1. I love this and the imagery of traveling. You make it sound like such an experience! I also enjoy how the last few stanzas provide a connection to the current pandemic–how to be lucky to even travel at all is a blessing, indeed. I enjoyed this piece greatly, and it is such a wonderful stream of consciousness writing. Beautiful.

  2. Well said for all of us with wanderlust.

  3. Terrific stream, nice read, but you do make me wonder what kind of tourist you used to be.

      Thanks :). I would say that many of us didn’t think that taking a flight or a bus or a train for that matter was such a big deal. It was just about buying a ticket and taking the form of transportation. We never had to worry about social distancing or anything for that matter.

      Moreover, while we all love travelling in our own way, am sure not everyone would have imagined that for a long time they wouldn’t be able to travel again. While am thankful that I get to travel, maybe I didn’t have that much of gratitude that I could do something like this when many couldn’t at all in the first place.

      I am sure for so many of us this pandemic has shown us a mirror to what we did right or wrong and what could be done to improve ourselves.

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I can travel along too.

    WE will all have a renewed appreciation for travel and the ability to do so freely, and foster the hope we are able to do so again one day!

      Amen! Am sure such a day will come sooner rather than later.

  7. Oh my, this gave me chills. We/I want so desperately to travel freely without fear or anxiety again. Hopefully that will happen. Cheers.

      I am sure a day will come soon enough where we will travel again. But I hope we can appreciate the fact that travelling is a privilege rather than a right we all get and appreciate the fact that we are lucky to be travelling at all :).

  8. This year we dream and remember… next year we will go and see…
    Well done!
