Favorite Quote:
\"Never stop laughing at life; it\'s the funniest thing around.\"


laying outside
on the pavement
in the grass
under the sun

clear blue skies
clouds rolling by
finding the shapes
like children again

singing
talking
laughing
…and silence.

SLAM!
a car door
people arriving
time to get up

the moment is gone
but the peace
and the friendship
last forever.


The author's comments:
After reading the play Our Town, I had an English assignment to write a poem about the simple joys of just living life. This poem was for that assignment, based on a moment of just laying outside looking at the clouds with a couple friends in the only five minutes of spare time we had that day.
