The Art Corner
“Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in their having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.” — Paul Klee

The Waves Crash

Sleeping in the sand,
Dreaming in the wind
Listening to the land
Life has left its brand

The waves are crashing
Sleeping on silk
Lying here thinking
In the world I’m sinking

Late on this night
The moon is shining bright
It's such a beautiful sight
It’s this world’s natural light

Now sitting here watching the waves
Look up at the stars
This moment it saves
Me from the days.
