Dream for the Future:
A peaceful world and a healthy environment
Waves of Happiness
I jump high, a two-legged gazelle
Arching my back, a perfect crescent moon
Kicking my legs up behind me
Throwing my head back
A giant, toothy grin on my face
The wind blowing my hair in every direction
Like Tibetan prayer flags.
I land with a splash in crystal clear waters
Turquoise from the white sand,
A mirror reflecting the cloudless blue sky.
A transparent fish darts between my ankles,
An expert skier slaloming in and out.
As the sun begins to set
I dig my toes in the sand
A radiator giving off the warmth absorbed from the sun.
Quiet all around, nature’s Meeting for Worship,
The only sound the soft waves gently kissing the beach.
All that is left to do
Is to pinch myself
To confirm this dream
Is in fact reality.
