Dandelions…
They flutter, now I see
Fiery lions…
They're dancing with me
Sunlight…

Secret journeys

Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find
Mountain in the making...in the dark alleys of my mind

Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village...

On March the third of two-thousand and eighteen,
