Natural You

You are the sunrise

Radiant heat bringing warmth so bright

Never scorching the hide of young girls, who run barefooted on the earth

To rest upon antiquity while basking in the light


You are a cool, mysterious poneglyph

Holding the wisdom of the ages in secret

Protecting the riddles that drive children to search for independence

To explore things bigger than themselves, fearlessly, boldly, with abandon


You are a gentle summer rain

Precious drops in which to dance, to twirl, to leap alive

Filling full the aquifers of young minds that ponder love and loss

That they may bloom and stretch their roots for a firmer hold
