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


I wish I could write about moths.
Their delicate, fluttering wings dipped in ink
would make beautiful art.

I wish I could write about starlight.
The magic of the heavens come down to earth
showering radiance.

I wish I could write about roses.
Velvet carpets for the water worlds inside
dewdrops make for an enchanting scene.

I wish I could write about windows.
Big or small, whether open or shut
these are gateways to freedom.

I wish I could write about my mind.
The endless rainbow of imagination
would paint beauty onto canvas
and I would never want for another story.
