Dreams become a reality to those of us who love ourselves enough to say no
I donít just serve
No I thrive on Life

I am not afraid to take that leap into the
Abyss of scary newness

How else will I grow
The fresh air of the night gently caresses my foot
Fulfillment encompasses me
Oh how I enjoy the simple things

The night sky is more beautiful the more I see its mystery its greatness
The trees cast their unique shadows on the
Clouded night sky reaching up into the heavens
To make a claming quiver up my spine

Wow the scary mystery of it
How much grandeur than me the landscape is

I wonder how it all really relates to me

I look up and even though itís a cloudy night I still feel its gracious mystery and abundance

What is the divine trying to tell me

The fullness of my heart when I see the gentle sway of the nightís trees as if to say
Sleep now, rest in harmony and solitude for tomorrow will start fresh and clean

The sun will arise with a new plan for the day everything is changing and staring a new

Love everything beyond this world beyond the here and now
Love for the unknown consumes my thoughts
There is so much more than this

I age with time each new wrinkle
Bringing a memory that follows like
A map of my life on my face for all to see

My soul whispers to the night sky
When will we be one
When will we merge

Mystery and wisdom coincide to
Thoroughly understand lifeís abundant knowledge

My thirst for knowledge overwhelms me
I grow tired from a long day

I close my eyes and I will awaken
To a new promise, a new sunrise

Life is calling to me
Life is telling me
I can be happy
Just being me

I really connected with what you had to say here. I'd like to encourage you to keep at it, and make sure you proof read carefully.

There are many beautiful musings in this piece. Keep polishing, reading aloud, perfecting. Very nice.

Fulfillment...hmmmm; well, in a way it had a hodge-podge of beautiful settings, mysterious ponderings of night skies and perhaps even fulfillment for the Writer...but I, myself, didn't embrace that feeling of fulfillment. You obviously have talent for expressing your thoughts, so keep at it; great potential here. Thanks for sharing.

I enjoyed the pictures you created with your thoughts, but didn't feel a flow of ideas.

I agree, some of the things you expressed truly touched me. Please don't stop polishing; I see wonderful potential here!
