pursue the dream







my soul sings a song
that flows on the breeze
in waves that reach the stars;
for peace is bestowed
on those who pursue
a dream to erase the scars.

  19. Awww Shadow! You write what I am thinking...but in SUCH lovely and usable a description of thought.

    The one thing which separates us from all other life on earth is our ability to think--and to love! That is the part of us which is God-like.

    Thank you SO much. Oh, and the photo, oh my! How frequently I think and write about the blade of grass and the miracle of the seed, conceived by the blossom it shall also become. Beautiful.
