Favorite Quote:
The stars in order twinkle in the skies,
And fall in silence, and in silence rise.

- William Broome


A breeze

as light

as air;

fluttering, twirling,

dancing a joyous dance

that causes the stumbling pebbles

at the edge of the river

to begin a sudden journey.




Down




into the treacherous rapids,

where it sank

like a rock.
