Proclaimer of Love
Risk- taker, Dreamer
Into the unknown frolics

You tear me from the world, wasting hours of my time
And others laugh, jibe, mock at
What you produce and I agree for it’s the impossible
These creatures and these plans
They say you’ll go nowhere
You’ve no aspirations that can be actualized
And it’s true they are far out
They say you are cruel, for you reveal
Those hidden monsters, the raw realities of life
Yet, I would say to them there’s no place
I’d rather be then this land, to escape from the mundane
To be utterly free
Who can’t say they experience this joy
The joy of a place that dances savagely,
Untamed through a forest of ever-changing trees
And who can’t say that they’ve been
Transformed by ideas from their own mind?!


Evolving,effervescent, enlightening
She twirls through the clouds alight with the
sunset and behind her mountains loom
Her laugh light as a fairies
the wild, fearless, surreal laugh of a
Lover, risk-taker, dreamer
