Waiting for a song to sing Together
Song of humanity and creation…
We are butterflies
Between a thousand flowers
At night we run among dreams
Stars and moon both merge
Us in love
Neon signs and billboards
Like a potter who gives life to clay
The moon creates a shadow
Evening’s silent approach
To a blank page of our heart
Sea waves, winds and sea shells
Sky and clouds
Talking to each other
Our secret poetry dissolve in perfect silence…
