Before I Die

>> 3.16.2009

Before I die
I want
to live,

dreams filed

my cottage in
the country, dig
my hands in
the dirt, create
gardens filled
with blossoms, colors
of dreams, shades
of life.

my place, free
my hopes, scribble
pages, recall
memories, open
my soul, fly
high and free.

family and friends
before my hearth, hold

them safe within
my heart, shoot

for the moon, soar
among the stars,
if only

in dreams or
on the page.

Wow... *is at a loss of words for a moment* This speaks very deeply especially that first bit "Before I die - I want to live..." Keep digging in the place you pull these words from.

About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
