Listening for the Alien Heartbeat

Rising in the mountains of Eastern Tibet
the Mekong flows through the history of China, Burma and Thailand
before bringing its ancient currency to Laos.

Laos: Mekong river and mountainsWith the evening
a mist comes down between the mountains to the river,
like a tide of souls.

Laos: mist coming down mountain to riverTo be born on this bright and muddy river

Laos: girl playing in riveris to be born with the weight of the past at your back.

    ‘Like a tide of souls’.. What a beautiful and perfect way to describe that part of the world and its river. You capture exactly my sense of it.

    “… to be born with the weight of the past at your back.”

    Best pairing I’ve seen so in a long time.

      yes, a beautiful place. But doesn’t seem so sad. Life sits lightly on the shoulders of the Lao. Really very nicepeople.

        i’m sure they are nice. my recent trip to Johor, the people were real nice too except for one trucker who tried to run us down at the traffic junction. that was a scary episode! you take care and remember to eat well 😀
