    life

    it is in my nature
    to make believe
    I am braver then the moon invader
    like the stars when they align
    to conquer the spark
    that makes them look so far
    close and apart
    to reach them
    is to release the dark

    it is in my nature to
    speak in words
    to convince myself it is
    the perfect sound that could almost
    sing in a Pavarotti falsetto
    birds from around the globe would
    pirouette and spin
    the world would lift
    and a pin would drop in silhouette and stops

    but it is not in my nature
    to entertain adventure
    without a thought that it may
    turn out to be fraught
    weakness for any day to capture
    is not my sort
    so I leave it to behold until
    I can be sure a little fun
    is happy to be shone and life is won.

    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Beautiful poem cacian, especially S1:

    "it is in my nature
    to make believe
    I am braver then the moon invader
    like the stars when they align
    to conquer the spark
    that makes them look so far
    close and apart
    to reach them
    is to release the dark
    "

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    it may never try
