Windpower

    Switch off the mind and let the heart decide
    who you were meant to be
    Flick to remote and let the body glide
    There is no enemy

    Shatter the lens and grind it into sand
    One measured exposure
    Scatter the seed and furrow in our land
    The future is roses. Roses.

      This is cool - a lot is going on here, but a lot of things like the steel color remain constant. Great perspective and contrast to the green hillside.
