Hello this is a poem I wrote several years ago, and I had my mom to illustrate the poem, “Free.” In case you’re wondering what’s on the painting. This is continuation of my ,”Fire,” series. I’m not a very good photographer, and the original is better than the picture above. Don’t judge me…be kind thanks. If anyone is interested in buying the poem, “Free,” and the painting please comment below. Thanks. Let’s play a game: In the comments below write what you think it was that I ran toward. Lol.
I sat under a tall tree that hid me from the rays of sun.
Quietly, I sat still
watching the bees buzzing, and swirling around a mass of white lilies
I looked over at a frog leaping from green lily pads singing a cheerful tune.
And calmness visited the earth
In the distance,
I saw a magnificent sight
I jumped to my feet and ran toward beauty
It flew around my head and I tried to catch it
But it escaped from my clutches
Flying up, up, into the sky.
