Sadness

Life can be so harsh
There is evil in the world
Tears run from my eyes

Pain and suffering
Eventually we die
Never to return

Memories haunt me
Nothing good comes out of it
Why can’t people change

Holy Island Batman

Holy mackerel
We are in real trouble now
Holy cannoli

Lindisfarne Castle
Batman, what do we do now
Cut off from the world

On the “Batman” TV series, which ran for 120 episodes between 1966 and 1968, Batman’s sidekick Robin (played by Burt Ward), was well known for his ever-changing exclamation catchphrase that would always begin with the word “holy”.  The second part of the exclamation would always involve something related to what Robin was shouting about in that episode.

The Sacred Waterfall

Creative life force
Plummeting waters worshiped
Clean running water

Pristine water shrine
A place for spirits to rest
Devine unity

Beauty of nature
Under the pounding cascade
Spectacular setting

Tranquil atmosphere
Moving body of water
Cleansing and soothing

Elegant shower
Hydroelectric power
Creating rainbows

I Am Feeling Some Love

Love is all around
Without love there is nothing
Celebrate romance

Spending time together
Top of the Eiffel Tower
The scent of flowers

Only one for me
Lovers at Niagara Falls
Love is possible

Triggered by pheromones
Contagious positive vibe
In love forever
