The Explorer

I wrote this as an ode to a wonderful explorer I met who connected with me in a very unexpected way. He truly is an adventurous soul. Thank you for the dances, the stories and the memories.
Joyeux anniversaire Sylvain !

You are a synergy of sorts
Transforming energy
From song to song,
From dance to dance
Translating rhythm into motion
And motion into expression.

The way you soak in every moment
How you take the time to live
The way you steer with the flow
Allowing connections to form
Perceiving the stimuli around you
Allowing yourself to absorb.

Your lips speak of humble things
Simple exclamations
Of pure satisfaction
Pursed with the indulgence
Of the sweeter things in life.

The freckles on your skin
Map out every place you have ever been
Every wrinkle
Is every line from a story
From the days you lived
And the hours you spent living.

You are alive
And living things should never be limited
You let it grow
Let it explore
It never stops
Never stays the same
The journey continues.

Picking up your bags
Packing up your memories
Leaving behind pictures
Empty hands
And sinking hearts.
