Favorite Quote:
I am always prepared for anything, accept for when I'm not.

The lights

Lights surrounding them, reflecting off the water.

A young couple amazed, not knowing what to possibly think to think.

We call it starlight,

But no they call it dreaming.
We think it’s reality,

But reality is just a dream.
Everywhere a smile,

And the smiles singing sweet lullaby’s.
With waves coating the shore,

No escaping the moment, but never wanting it to stop.
Time collapses but they don’t notice care.

Just resonating light seemingly falling from the sky.
No sadness, no fear, nothing could possibly make them fall.

Seemingly endless flight,
Seemingly endless.

I was inspired to write this poem from a painting by Monet:)
