Favorite Quote:
"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

Rough, furry skin emitting a mud-soaked white colour
Little lamb arises from behind the shaggy crown of its forebears
Letting out the tiniest ‘bah’ so all the other sheep hiss at it in fury;
Rotten skin from within, barking out their insidious shame.

Little lamb stumbles on,
Baahing familiar lullabies;
Until one day,
It discovers a pure golden sunrise:
And it was like discovering a friend
Who saw that your beginning was not your end.
