Favorite Quote:
"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination." - John Lennon

Hands gentle as a feather reach out to grasp hold of the barrier between her loyal pleasure.
Slowly, her fingertips graze the fur of a friend as a star so bright, the same one that grows the thick green carpet beneath, shines down on her face warm of happiness.
Whispers of angels blow the ends of her dress and the bow of elegance wrapped around her protection from the light.
Gazing between the wire she grins as unnoticed hands lift her with the wind until she is placed back down on the other side with her long awaited friend.

The author's comments:
I got this idea for a poem from a photo. It was a picture of me as a little girl holding on to a fence and reaching out to pet my dog who was on the other side. I was wearing a sun hat, that had a neatly tied bow around it, and a spring dress. I tried to capture the moment with writing...and this is what I got.
