Spring Is Here

My home is finally becoming Spring
I am happy to welcome the heat
Sun shining
Flowers blooming
And the air smelling sweet

The sky is finally bright blue
And all the wildlife can be seen
Birds chirping
Squirrels hunting
In a yard full of green

I can finally go for a hike
In the beautiful land of trees
Hearing nature
Feeling perfect
And enjoying the fresh breeze

The Stars

I believe in fate
And everything happens for a reason
I'm reminded of this every time I look at the stars
I like the feeling I get knowing something greater is out there
Somewhere, somehow
Everything big and small means something
I feel like I'm guided by the night sky
Taken on a journey
Forever wandering this planet
I fear nothing when I think of this invisible force
I like thinking this way
I'm at peace with this world
If there is anything I am certain of in life
It's that everything will be okay as long as I can see the stars

The stars are what make me truly happy
I can't explain this feeling
I see them and I just get lost
Marveling at the beautiful sight
I'm filled with so much joy
Yet not many people understand
This connection I have
The stars and I
It's my fate to love them

I Love

I love staring at a clear night sky for hours
I love to sit on my deck and paint the landscape
I love the smell of freshly cut grass and a campfire
I love to wander the forest by my house and take pictures from weird angles
I love to close my eyes and listen to the birds singing on a hot summer day
I love to read books while lounging in my bright orange bean bag chair
I love singing at the top of my lungs with music blasting from my speakers
I love chasing my dog all around the yard and tackling him
I love eating a chocolate lava cake while watching a movie with my sister
I love feeling the nerves I get right before acting on stage in front of an audience
I love going on a hike and being one with nature
I love fishing with my dad at our favorite lake
I love designing and creating a haunted house for my town
I love the taste of a smoothie any day of the year

Clear Nights

Late at night
When the moon is out
And the stars are bright
I sit here
Enjoying the cool air
And the sounds of darkness
My eyes always transfixed on the sky
Marveling at its beauty
At times like this
I'm grateful for solitude
The void in me is filled
And I'm alone but not lonely
Nature has a way of calming me
And teaching me to relax
And forget about humanity
If only for a little while

Overrun By Books

I cry every time I read
I want those moments
The moments that give someone meaning
When I read those words and picture their lives
All I want is to be them
Or some version of them
Not the ones that have the perfect lives
Or the ones with the happy endings
But the ones who keep going no matter what the world throws at them
The ones who go on adventures
The ones who have a friend who they can talk about anything with
The ones who learn how to love
The ones who would do anything to be with the one they adore
The ones who enjoy their lives despite hardships
The ones who have a story to tell
Not always a good one
But one that will have an impact on at least one person

I'm not asking for a different life
All I want is to have those moments
And feel some of those feelings
And live a life that means something
I know I won't get my perfect fantasy

Trees Awakening

I was walking the edge of the forest by my house
When I heard a slight squeal I considered a mouse

I turned to my left to see an emerging face
Coming out of the tree, 4 feet up the base

It looks at me with a sense of curiosity
Like I was the strange one and was the monstrosity

“I’ve spent so many years under a curse by a witch.
She kept us trees silent.” He says with a twitch

“Well, welcome back,” I reply disbelieving
“I think it's time for me to be leaving.”

“Don’t leave me,” He shouts as I walk quickly home
“I need your help to free my legs so I can roam.”

I must be sick and must be hallucinating
For surly that tree was not just communicating

I sit in the living room and as if it was mocking
The news reporter on tv said that trees were talking
