“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?”

Stealing Kisses

The sun thought

I wasn’t looking 

When he kissed the earth

But I saw

The soft light 

Between his lips

As he delicately

Brushed through

Her grassy meadows.

The Me in Me

“Don’t let your wild beauty be tamed. Don’t let your heart be swayed by the opinions of others. Don’t let  your individuality be trapped in a vortex of trying to please the world. Don’t let your vision be restricted by someone else’s fear. Don’t give over your originality to conform in unhappiness. Be brave. Step out into the light. Remember you were born to be free. Blossom in your own unique wonder and magic. You have all that you need inside you. Let the wild in you be nurtured. Let the beauty in you be freed.”
