When I first saw today’s prompt, it conjured the image of a tropical paradise, palm trees, golden beaches, sun and exotic blooms, and I guess that’s what most of us would think of, dream of even. But then the title of a world famous poem came into my head and I felt compelled to read it. Afterwards my thoughts were deep, philosophical and I began to write . . .
Inspired by the title, “No Man Is An Island” by John Donne.
In our aloneness, would we recognise the beauty surrounding us? Would we reach out to others and find solace with them?
Even an island needs to be shown love, be free to accept love and give love in return. An island has to interact with the world around it to stay strong and healthy.
Your island is deserving of wonderful things, but most of all the unconditional love of friends and family.
