A Couple Million Writers

If it wasn’t a dark and stormy night
And it wasn’t a long long time ago,
Then what was it?
Well I will tell you,
It was a story told down by family to family,
Remembered by heart before paper.
It was stuck in young minds
Inspiring you to take your first stride.
It was your night and day,
While traveling to the corners of space.
It was your sweet smelling moments,
As well as the dark scary seconds.
This story writes every move,
It is your story, you write,
You are the author of your life

Wondering Tides

Rolling waves crash on the beach
Creating wind that messes with my hair
My heart beats the rhythm of my step.
Salty water obeys the moon and rises
Then falls.
Tides always keeps me wandering.
Then wondering as stars cover the sky.
Sand seeping around my feet
Silently telling me to stay.
But I can’t, I step further and further
The waves spraying,
The wind blowing,
My heart pounding.

Drip a River

They all wished for sun shine
For clear bluebird skies.
Each one complaining that their life is the worst.
But from what I learned you make you life suck
When all you do is complain and believe in negativity.
I chose to dance in the rain and let it soak me to the bone,
I chose to let myself smile and feel the love around me.
So instead of waiting for the sun, dance in the rain,
Let it fall onto your cheeks, lips and hair.
Allow it to refresh you for the life ahead.
Then as they all wait for sunshine,
Accept the rain and dance with a smile,
Until you are wet enough to drip a river.

Winter Flowers

In A Meadow

In a meadow
Where the wind can run free through my hair,
Where the air is fresher and sweeter than after a storm,
Where my dress flows carefully through tall pale grass.
In a meadow
Where I am free to sprint forever and my legs never tire,
Where my voice empowers the wind to blow harder,
Where I love everything around me,
All it is, is just me, my dress, the field and the sky.
In a meadow
With tall wild grass, I live forever in this endless bliss.

Happy Moments

You said to go follow my dreams
But when my dreams consist of you,
My desires slip through my fingers
And my gaze is flipped to you.
You catch my eye
And make my breath feel like my last,
You make my heart beat right out of my chest,
Like the beat was made for you.
You distract me from the most capturing pictures
Making my eyes leave the sunset forever.
When you speak, I get lost,
As if I am wandering in the most beautiful forest ever.
They all told me to wait for no one
But I still could not help but wait for you,
You capture me and make me dread the moments without you.
So as your day ticks on
Just know that I am thinking of
You
And I hope your mind is on
Me.

I Love Snowboarding

I love flying down the mountain,
My board surfing over the snow,
The way my heart goes up when I hit a jump,
The way each turn brings me farther.
I love it all.
I love being with my friends
Laughing with each other as we ride up the lift,
Our boards and skis knocking into each other.
The cold almost too hard to bear,
But we all love it anyway.
I love
Every chance I get to go snowboarding,
To see the world through my orange-tinged goggles,
And the white snow coming down in front of the green chair lift.
I love this sport with all my heart.
I am a snowboarder.

The Sky of Possibilities

Never did I think the sky could hold so many possibilities
All of the stars give me hope
That tomorrow will be better.
Like a bird I wish to fly
My wings stretching out before the moon
My heart pounding to beat of freedom.
Like long gone wishes mine came true,
Wind streaking my lips
And for moments I was apart of the gust,
I was breathing in the earth.
Now I know that it was no wish
That made me fly,
I was already apart of the wind,
My eyes just couldn’t find
The sky of possibilities.

Alive

Never do I feel more alive then in the mornings
When the sunrises shine over mountains
And with each shaky breath takes in fresh cold air,
The dewdrops glissade onto my ankles.
Brisk sweet air flies through my hair,
The dirty blonde strands brush along my face.
My eyes wander, gazing at each beautiful sight,
Before returning back to my running shoes.
My exercise jacket fits tight to me and my ponytail is pulled high.
I take a step,
And then another,
Faster and faster I am
Running down the road, advancing towards the rising sun.

Star Filled Shells

Sea shells rest in the sand,
The salty ocean gently
Falling over and over again.
The millions of stars that lay overhead
Come loose and fall
To the sea.
Toppling into off white shells,
Giving them glowing bright magic.
The sky and sea are now flip flopped,
With the stars down here
And the blank navy ocean up there.
Gracious small hands
Take star filled shells, back to their hearts,
While the open sky waits for them to come back
Home.
