disturb us - 2013.09.16

Disturb us, Lord, when We are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

~ Sir Francis Drake

the smell of bees - 2013.09.04

Bees do have a smell, you know,
and if they don't they should,
for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.

~ Ray Bradbury

brave - 2013.08.31

Kept on the inside and no sunlight,
Sometimes a shadow wins.
But i wonder what would happen if you
Say what you want to say
And let the words fall out

~ Sara Bareilles
