My sunshiny girl

The sun is always rising from your pocket.
A song is ever frolicking in your hair.
The ground is perpetually dancing beneath your feet.
Delight is incessantly playing in your eyes.
And in shimmery rays of glory,
the color of life is forever found in you.

The spotted speck


It floated across
The wide open sea
A spotted speck
Was all it seemed to be
And yet upon
A much closer inspection
She noticed it was just
A mere reflection
Twas the sun glinting
Off the crystalline blue
Radiating a rather
Resplendent hue
And she wished every image
Could have such a lovely effect
And wondered why the whole world
Couldn’t be like that spotted speck
