Favorite Quote:
"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth." -Mark Twain


Snarling in my ears
roaring like the flames that leave
Nothing but ashes
and behind that,

beauty
And the cool love of rain
that patters on the roof –
people dancing, feet, bare,
searching the charred clouds
for a glimpse of a twist of stars
in the night in
silence
or the rustle of the leaves in autumn,
darkening with frost – returning to the earth –
the precise color of the crown
you wear.
