Traveling with the Sun and Moon




we are the  children of the  earth 
traveling with  the sun  and  moon
seeking our destiny since  birth
we are the  children  of the  earth 
warming hearts by a dancing hearth
natural  beauty our heads swoon 
we are the  children  of the  earth 
traveling with  the sun  and  moon

  1. I do like "We are the children of the earth..." and the repetition of that double line just made it more powerful.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving your kind comment.

  14. Truly to literally travel as
    humans in the golden spiral
    flow of moving like planets
    around Suns.. is a way to truly
    be one with Nature.. in balance
    tRuly wOnE.. without rules of
    Culture.. Innate instinct..and
    Intuition flows win iNOW..:)

  21. when aliens will come to Earth: goodbye religion and all its lies

    ReplyDelete
  22. (1)...interstellar travel (aliens in Moon?)...are there aliens in Moon´s occult face?, perhaps they could be go to/come from faraway in straight line beyond occult face, for not to be detected from Earth... It´s something strange that NASA cancelled the 2 last Apollo missions when they were in all prepared for launch to Moon... Why astronauts when came back from Moon they were stay silent so?. Why NASA has not gone to Moon from ½ century ago?...economic reasons?, "lack of interest"?...or, the Evil Empire: religion, armies, monarchies and politicians...are the causers too, besides of wars, besides control of all global media (thousands million of "believers": bribed, or innocents, or ignorant...when aliens will come to Earth: goodbye religion and all its lies...for that reason there are religious piteous, intimidating to ignorant, TV programs and movies presenting supposed aliens "grey", "reptilian", etc, as or "enemies", if religious would not so damaging; be careful, religious go saying in "their" global media that "3th World War has already begun"...because Humankind escapes from them and go to Future; they would give a pity)...

  23. (2)...interstellar travel (aliens in Moon?)... and Evil Empire are hiding the truth to People, to continue "forever and ever" with their religious lies living from the People´s Work and do not changes actually anything in World: religion, poverty, violence, ignorance... People say (ufo TV) was detected in Space an alien spacecraft with 800 kms! Size... Can to have, near, aliens yes, or aliens not (in Universe of course there are a great quantity of Intelligent Beings like us... Tales "Star Wars" with aliens: NO thanks, if aliens could come to Earth they still are superior Intelligent Beings and therefore good people... Before, to avoid migrations by inequality, was climbed by the same the standard life level around the Planet, it was easy: 1 only united Planet without Nations, without Wars and without Frontiers, cities only, with only 1 World Government, 1 single Flag and 1 single new World Army...), but... The face of the Moon...really seems a face, no other satellite in Solar System has that human appearance...is like...if it would look us... By chance?, or...aliens a very long time ago did it... The Earth is only a sand grain on beach of the Universe...exterior Space calls us...
