Listen

When all the world goes quiet
When leaves from trees refuse to fall
Then, listen.

You can fight for the right to say what you want…

The Sweetest Rose

The rainstorm worries at the withering leaf,
It trembles and shakes, finding no relief.

Beloved

Nature fits around you so
Like a frame surrounds great art
