Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

Make me like a clay jar
With no holes so water
Can't run through
A vessel from the earth
Give me a strong foundation
My time of birth

Make me shine in the sun
My beauty will only
Reflect my maker
I'll be a symbol of your love
Set here on this earth
Like how you came from above

And if I shatter it'll be
Not because of you
But of me
I'll have stayed in the sun too long
Thinking myself more beautiful
When that's so wrong

If I let myself fall to pieces
Lord, pick me up
And don't throw me away
Put me back in the flames
It'll only hurt for a while
But then I'll be remade

this is so great! I love it! I like it so much I could almost copy it here, it so speaks for itself. But I won't. Because that would be redundant.
