Ripples of Life #poetry #photography

ripples of music

 

(archived 9/5/ 2012)

You have to fall in love

and lose it

to really know love at all

you have to wish on a star

and hold it

to catch the dust as it falls

you have to give

with your whole heart

 to embrace the weak and the small

you have to be pierced

through the middle

to understand the power of pain

you have to live life

to the fullest

to understand loss and gain

you have to throw caution

to four winds

to dance with life’s love in the rain
