Lanzarote comprises just one of the islands widely referred to as The Canaries, a volcanic archipelago located about one hundred kilometers off the north-west coast of the greater African continent.
After I had initially fawned over the exquisite arrangement and seductive artistry involved in preparing the lobster, crab, prawn and scallop salads that adorned the window of La Charcuterie de Montmartre, I just had to walk inside and explore.

His mind was in the zone. He felt ready to go with the gentle ebb and flow, so he played with the tide much like a child, if only to experience that sweet joy of feeling at home alone…
Weaving, weaving all the time
This sticky web of mine.
Catching flies, catching spies
In a silky world of fragile wires.
Always without remorse
From an inexplicable source.
Like a flame that never flickers,
Unseen, unheard, unspoken.
Or a synchronous show that softly whispers,
“Spidey, come find ME”.
Weaving, weaving all the links
To this broken web of mine.
Spinning away time, an intuitive rhyme
Unlearned, yet all-knowing.
Always without remorse
For the unsullied cause.
A frozen snapshot
Captured in time
Of a dramatic vision
That invites all who will climb.
To experience the majesty of meaning in life
The part not thought but felt to be right,
For words fail to describe the whole
We can only speculate and wonder at it all.
And the gloss imposed unveils interpretation
No less inspired by the roads that are taken
By each and every living soul.
So take the time
To breathe in nature
Explore horizons never ventured
Because sometimes the glitter may be masking the gem
And you forget to pay attention to where the truth actually began.
