The place was beautiful, green unlike any park we’d seen in the city.

Even the steps that led to a pond below had grass and flowers growing on it.

“How serene is this, this lap of nature. I could get lost here forever, or write a poem about it.”

Alan had voiced what I felt, but hearing his words, I burst out laughing.

“What’s so funny?”

He looked at me, confused, but his voice held no remorse.

I stepped toward the pond, then turned around.

“You, whose company continues to pollute such lands, are appreciating it beyond words. How ironic!”

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
