I'm glad to see that all of you have returned safely.
And I want all of you to remain here and write some poetry.
And Leelee, I do have some notebooks, but I do not carry them around all day along (not just yet).
And LadyAlyss, what a nice short poem. I enjoyed of every bit.
By the way, I feel very sad about this winter. It's december already, and I see no snow.
And there's nothing worse in this world, than a winter without snow. It totally breaks my heart.
So, I gotta keep my hopes high and soothe my mind with writing some poetry, and maybe you fellows will like of it too, who knows.
The Stream of Golden Stars
It's a lonely night, and I find myself staring at the paintings on the wall..
One of them reminds me of legends and secrets, of past and times of old..
And as I take a step towards the dying light, it ceases to rain.. For the first time today..
And as I start to remember the names of all those stars.. I imagine myself walking up there..
High and so far..
Do you wish to see what lies beyond those snowy mountains and hills..
I wish I'd be able to walk on the clouds of this sky, never to fall, never to wonder why
I long to see a storm of snow, I want to go higher, I don't want to return to the world that lies below
Ahead of me, I see a stream of golden stars, it's light is more than enough to calm my thoughts, it eases the beating of my heart..
Isn't it wonderful to know that we all can have our own hopes and dreams
If we all could fly, it would be worth of a try
A journey to the ends of this world, A journey through the space and the time
But if I'm not able to go so far.. I can still remain here to witness the powerful light..
Of the stream of golden stars..
I hope that you believe to the gods of ancient times
We're not alone in this world, this life is a gift, it's not a curse
And what if they speak to us through our own visions and dreams
Is it only dreaming, or could it be real..
What if they can change the color of the sky, and make the rivers to flow
What if they could restore the balance of darkness and light, and make all of the stars to glow
Once more.. I hope.. I want to see them one day, before our sun begins to sleep, before it is too late..
Tonight I saw one stream of stars.. There are many of those..
Many new skies to create, many snowflakes to fall..
And maybe one day.. I can revive all of the dead animals, flowers and trees..
With the touch of knowledge and warmth..
It's a feeling that shall never fade, nor disappear from our souls, so pure and free
That is what I believe from the bottom of my heart..
Do you now know what lies beyond this sky..
Do you know where to go, if you see a stream of golden stars that you must find..
