Theme: “The Silk Road”

Under the vast sky, dawn embraces the dunes,
The distant horizon where silk weaves the moon.
Merchants and camels, silhouettes of fortune,
Cross lands, under the sun, under the mist.

Mountains rise, majestic, austere,
To flowery valleys, secret oases, ephemeral.
The road winds between deserts and rivers,
Carrying silks and spices in a thousand-year-old ballet.

Lotus petals float in the light wind,
Caravaneers sing, echoes of a foreign past.
Every step is a tale, a story to share,
On the Silk Road, where souls travel.

Distant Beijing, Samarkand, cities of mystery,
meet, intermingle, cultures and lights.
The stars guide the night, keep lonely watch,
On travelers, their dreams, their prayers.

In the silence of the desert, the moon keeps watch,
On the Silk Road, eternal wonder.
A bridge between worlds, where the horizon sparkles,
Testimony to a time, to a shining spirit.
