lost in colors

nature sings to

the rhythm of beating wings

butterflies and flowers playful

neath the rising sun

  9. No longer playful,
    I used to be.
    The trees always beckoned me.
    Loved hiking, the water, treking in the wild.
    Playfully lit with spontaneous smiles.

    No longer playful

    Playfully running, happiness was mine.
