​  Sometimes you may feel

  You were born 

     in the wrong place.

  Another place calls to you.

  You can go there,

  Go to where you resonate

     with the landscape.

  For some, it's mountains.

  For some, it's ocean.

  For me, it's desert. 

  Sometimes you may feel

  You were born

     in the wrong time.

  Another time, another century, calls to you.

  You can't go back.

​  But you can write about it.
