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.
