Weaving Strands of our Being

















they  say   dreams  are  for  believing
weaving
adventure in  faraway   lands  
strands
pearls of  wisdom  overseeing
of  our  being 
letting  go  can  be  so  freeing 
close  your  weary  eyes  drift   away 
let  your  inner  child  out  to   play 
weaving strands of  our  being

  13. It has such a musical sound to it as you read it. I love that. Also, my inner child is out so much I don't think it's possible to stuff him back inside at this point.

    1. Hey, anything musical I love...I think it is best to leave your inner child out he likes to play and he makes me laugh :)
