Each small stone underneath the water lay A brighter color than when kissed by the sun A free mind soars underneath the puffy white clouds Floating across the blue sky The warm soft sands blanket my toes The breeze whispers peace into my ears The waves come again and again in a soothing, rushing rhythm All around speaks of peace, beauty, joy The land is singing, is happy to live!

Warm sun on my hair Lights up in copper and gold Glittering wildly. Haiku
