As I walk the streets of a city built thousands of years ago,
My imagination wanders to the souls it used to know.
The hands that lay stone in walls that have stood the test of time,
The battles fought and soldiers armed to defend the long coastline.
The houses and their occupants over many centuries,
What were their dreams?
How did they live?
What was their place in history?
These cobbled streets and bowed stone walls,
whisper wisdom as I pause to listen,
“slow down and tread with purpose, build for futures beyond your vision.”
