Favorite Quote:
I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.
-Harun Yahya

All my life I've looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.
-Ernest Hemingway


The grey sky has cleared to a pure blue
The angry weather has ceased, leading
To a golden day, I am alive
I take off and I am
Running along in a luscious meadow
Soft and squishy, after the rain
New and fresh, like a newborn child
He is free of worries and problems
A clean slate after darkness
I am different in this light
Tore off my clothes to feel
The sunshine on my bare skin
I needed to experience rebirth just as the earth did
An arc in the skin, painted with colors
Wading through wet grass with
Outstretched arms, I breathe in the freshness
Dirt covers my body and I bend
Down to the ground and pick a fresh pink flower
Put it in my hair and spin around
Looking to the sky, filled with air
I feel light like a feather and the wind ruffles
My hair softly, I feel like I could
Float away on the airwaves
I am free and alone in a vast
Land and I am unknown but I feel
Important and happy
Happy yes, happy
That is new, just as the earth feels
After a dark rain storm
