CHOICES
To be or not, to do if i please
Inhale large gulps of twitterings
Exhale with its orangeness
Evenings, curving into silhouettes

To do if i please, to be or not
Butterfly wings over feverfew
No one planted, yet the wind
Takes credit for these things

To be or not, to do if i please
I'll paint skies in cloudy hues
Silver is the morning light
That glistens over silent dew

  2. So many choices in live. "To do or not" is a big (and basic one). Hopefully, in most cases, the answer is to DO!

  13. We must remember to smile both at the rain and the sun, the wind and the night for each will do someone good somewhere.
