Finding Her Mind.

November 2, 2008
By Tara Moreland, Parsons, KS

Face upwards to the sun
Drinking rays of times long passed
Arms stretched out reaching
Towards dreams too far away

Spinning in circles
Laughing with her eyes closed
And her mouth wide open
Ringlets of hair flying

Worries momentarily invisible
Sadness kidnapped by hope
Replaced by smiles sincere
And a heart with no cracks

A passerby might think she was a child
Or maybe someone who’d lost her mind
But if only they knew that in this moment of bliss
She’d found it once again

It's all very well written and I really enjoyed reading it. The thir stanza's my favorite. Really good job :D
