Light filters through the blinds as I watch in awe the golden shafts reaveal a swirling vortex of dust that slowly floats past me. The sunbeams bathe my face in warmth and now my skin is illuminated the color of fall leaves, their faces brightened with shining beams. I know I should look away but I can't because I crave the light I crave the hope and the sun, the sun brings that hope like a sudden unexpected suprise full of life.
Summer nights hold beauty and wonder. If you go out on a summer night, let the dewy grass tickle your feet, and the wind tousle your hair. Look up to the sky. Cup the stars in your hands and let them whisper their secrets in your ear. Then let them go, one by one, like fireflies flickering in the dark. Then collect the silvery moonbeams in a jar and hold them close. When the time is right, and the crickets sing,drink. Savor every last drop of the magic of night. Then feel love surging through you, and spread the warmth. As the sun peeks over the horizon, curl up on the soft grass, the blanket of Earth wrapped warmly around you.
Out my window Balloons float above the harbor, rising slowly I watch as the craft, seeming to burst through the clouds drifts back down. I run fast, through the door, my feet leaving marks in the soft, pure sand. I reach the harbor and it waits for me watching. The balloon fights against the ropes holding it down to Earth. I climb in and we rise above the town above the ocean above the world and I watch from the clouds gazing at the map laid out before me.
