A NEW BEGINNING

 

 

A NEW BEGINNING

The rain hits the puddles

in a staccato rhythm.

mesmerizing sound.

Tree branches hang low,

weighed heavy with water.

Flowers lift shiny faces

for their morning washing.

The cold, crisp rain

refreshes and renews.

The clouds drip dry.

The sun returns

to brighten the day.

The air smells clean.

A new day dawns.

A new beginning.

CASTLE IN THE SKY

 

 

CASTLE IN THE SKY

The castle in the sky,
Oh my, oh my, oh my.
I want to go there.
Let free my long hair.
Water flows by my feet,
Such a miraculous feat.
A violin at my feet, 
But the water appears deep.
As it parts for me.
I walk through the sea.
The castle in the sky.
Oh my, oh my, oh my.

TAME

 

Please, I want to go outside.

No reason for you to hide.

The winds bring rain.

But they are tame.

 

I won’t fall or melt

If hail were to pelt.

I’ll be forever in your debt

If you allow me to get wet.

 

I’m pulling on my chain.

You don’t need half a brain

To know I’m ready to go free.

See what a great pet I can be.
