Hello everyone! Hope you are having a good day. As some of you know, I came back from my road trip to Alberta about a month ago. Looking back at my photos, my mind would wander – skipping the long distance, jumping over the fences and just be in that space of silence. We were also lucky that the entrance fees to our National Parks in Canada this year is free, so that meant easy access and no barriers to enjoy the many lakes, valleys and mountains surrounding the parks.
My prompt today is about border, that line separating two political or geographical areas, especially countries, or the outer part or edge. More than the physical boundaries, there are borders which are invisible, such as an imaginary, social or mental borders. These kind of borders are more challenging to overcome, don’t you agree? Challenge: To write about border theme and include the word “border” either in your title or poem. An extra challenge would be to write about the invisible border theme e.g. mental borders or imaginary boundaries. The form and structure is your choice.

lies a veil
a border invisible
real and colourful
who is in?
we are one
As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.Ram Dass
