The wind blowing,
the energy showing
with the emotion on my face.
It takes me there
where there is no care
to some far off place.

It's the spirit of life
and it's calling to me,
calling my heart
to where I can be free.

Energy transform
and a wave is born,
it dances with the sky.
It will learn one day
they'll fing a way
to make this life a lie.

It's the spirit of life
and it's telling my soul
to look for the good
in the hearts of all.

The wave will die,
they won't even cry
when it steps onto the beach.
The stars will fall
the sky will call,
but friends won't be able to reach.

It's the spirit of life
crying in my heart,
we live under the same sky
but still so far apart.




 Waves...amazing hey? Wind blowing over smoothe ocean water creates shear. The longer the wind blows, and the futher the fetch, the more energy gets transferred from the wind to the water. What started off as a breeze 1 000km away, ends up as a glass-faced barrel at some far off beach.

This has beautiful imagery. It's very interesting, as the meaning  doesn't jump out at the reader and when you read it over and over again, all these emotions come out...I find it really sad and longing.

I just read it again..wow. 'Great' doesn't describe it...it's so deep. I could write an essay on this, maybe it's because I'm so into the sky, sea and nature and I feel exactly as the last verse does.
Sorry for rambling!  

Keep on writing, I'm looking forward to see more of your work!!!

Choice, to live my life extended...." Muse

"Even when we're apart we'll still be under the same sky," LJ Smith

"Hiding in the musty attic is Elusive
She sits, cross legged in a midst dark cobwebs
Several forms scurry to seek shelter
Beneath her levitating shadow.
Her back rigid , eyes glassy
Gazes intently at time escaping
Sliding, smoothly, as sand sprinkles
Through the hour glass,
A single tear grazes her misty cheek." Lani
