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

Who cares

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…
