"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."


When the cold night ends
And the spring is new
Here you float among
The gentle golden waves
With your stems thrust deep
In the waters blue
Reaching down through the depths
I can only dream
When the sun sings out
Carry the sunbeams for me
Set your petals alight
With heaven’s fire
Set your gaze on the sky
When the rains pour down
Shake the ice off your roots
And wake the morning with a smile
When the moon is high
Catch the starlight in your leaves
Fill the cooling air
With the scent of years gone by
Push the shadows aside
And escape from death’s embrace
Carry the sunbeams for me

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

I find roses so over done it's tacky...But lotuses are still cool!
