Song of the Things that I Always Will Be

A Poem By Hannah W. // 1/15/2009

Breathless darkness,
sparks in the air
Scattering stars
wind in my hair

Tumbling through fields,
light touch of feathers
Song of the earth
echoes forever

Heartbeat and dirt,
trees sway in the night
Shadows and flame
glowing orange, bright

Smell of the forest
cool air on my cheeks,
running, heart soaring
no words do I speak

Orion the Brave,
with his arrows and bow
he hunts in the sky
and the way he does show

Torches blazing,
beautiful night
hills and horizon
reach far beyond sight

Song of the past singing in me,
song of the spirit that longs to be free
song of the sky and song of the trees
song of the things that I always will be.

That was beautiful! It made me want to kick off my shoes and go lay on the lawn tonight. :)

Beautiful poem! Very lyrical. I have to say, it DIDN'T make me want to go lay on the lawn - but that's probably because it's only 4 degrees here, and the windchill is 6 below zero.
Tell you what: I'll read the poem again in the spring, and THEN I'll go lay on the lawn! :)

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

So lovely.

So lovely.

That was beautiful, Hannah. I could picture everything. Very discriptive and lyrical.
