A Thirst for Adventure

By Zoha Taqi

the sun shines on her face
   and she bathes in its warmth
   with such grace
   even the sun would be charmed  

   raising her legs
   high up in the air
   while everyone begs
   her not to disappear   

   to snap back to reality
   and realize that life is more than roaming
   through beaches and thick trees
   it is more than hoping for silver linings 

   but she couldn’t ignore
   the honey that flowed through her veins
   the aching in her bones to explore
   everything and anything of the earth that remains
