i want to live in a world…
where i can go barefoot everyday.
where the grass is soft beneath my feet
and the hard Georgia clay sticks to my heels.
where the roar of the ocean is never far away.
where my pulse matches the undulation
of the waves, kissing on the shore.
where the creativity in my soul is expressed
in the labor of my hands and
the sweat of my brow.
where laughter and love and conversation
flow like the water that so often
quenches the fire in my spirit.
where friends are family
and family are friends
and my backdoor is always welcoming loved ones inside.
