In a long day, a short pause.

I do not know if there is heaven or hell
I do not know if there is good and bad

I do not know a lot of these things that guide all of us
to do the things we do and be happy and sad...

I know that there is a complete feeling in a child's laughter
An energy so refreshing thats just mesmerizing
Like the entire universe that was flowing along
Just stopped surprised, coming to stand still.

I know that there is a sense of peace to hear gurgling streams of water.
I know there is a something romantic about the gentle breeze in the hot sun..

I know that kites are always like our spirit, lighter than the air
Where you lead them, there they go, in joy, they sway..
I know that the colors in the flowers, are like the flavors of life...
That everyday, new and beautiful is here to stay.

Sometimes, in a day so rough you wish you could just give it all up,
a little push of confidence comes from a least expected place...

Summer's here

What is it with the weather?
I thought I would hate it..
After the walk that evening
On the first summer day,
I was sure I would hate it,
The summer, this May...

But I loved it,
I loved the heat.

I loved the long walks
Along green pathways.
The colors of the flowers
That people put out to display,
The sound of the cricket
thats finally trying to say...

The winter has been long
Too long to my liking...
too dull in the end
to the point of breaking

But now its summer
and it will be winter again
but am determined to let
the sun in, and smile today.
