Beijing

II stand
amidst cherry blossoms,
reborn magnolia trees.

I tread
where dynasties ruled,
savored opulence as others served.

I climb
where men toiled, backs bent
bearing heavy stone.

I walk through history
incredulous to see
to understand,

to know.
We are
but a speck in time.

    This needs to go as an intro to your album of this amazing trip! As usual, I love how you use word painting to express the depth of your emotion ! Thank you!
