Favorite Quote:
"We love the things we love for what they are."
Robert Frost

Pastel purples
Laid across chalk blue lines,
Suspended in white nothingness,
But perfectly designed.


Dotted with soft hickory,
But speckled in pale coral
That floats above a mantelpiece
Of nothingness.


Puffy clouds give lazy silence
To bright and airy space —
Not so much a room, not a scene,
But an open, blank slate.


Reserved for quiet sun dances
And childish skipping,
Echoed with laughter and kisses
And butterscotch smiling.


A nothingness for all things fuzzy,
Where tiny feet bounce on cotton balls,
And nothing amounts to everything,
Because peace,
My friend,
Is never really nothing,
After all.
