Sunlight We enter in to this dance of a brand new day where light softly pirouettes above the stoic mountains who have seen eras pass by like grains of sand cartwheeling across dusty country roads, knowing this, too, shall one day become ancient history with all of its pain and mystery, but for now we tiptoe across moments left dangling from this high wire that none of us chose to climb, and all we can do is try to inch forward towards the soft glow of the morning sun as she dances with the universe to the sweet songs of the stars.
