Favorite Quote:
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Curling up in a cocoon,
Hiding under my blankets,
Mommy thinks I'm sleeping,
But, really, I'm awake.
Her shadow in the doorway moves,
And the sound of footsteps fades.
I hop out of my bed, to
Sit at my windowsill and
Watch the cloudless blue sky.

The author's comments:
This is about a memory I have as a child, for absolutely no reason at all. I was supposed to be napping and when my mother wasn't looking, I got up and stared out my window at the birds and trees outside.
