let its warmth fall upon the earth
leaving only a bleak...Read More

Are We There Yet
Driving on our journey
We grow excited as we get near
To our final destination
Where we'll all give a great cheer.

Eager for days of playfulness
To rejuvenate body and mind.

We pass signposts along...Read More

In my life, all I need
Is beautiful music
All the sweet melodies
Swaying in the wind
Happy days here

Throwing caution to the wind
Some say I'm lonely
I merely state I'm homely
In my world there's only...Read More

Premium Member I Invented a Much Better Car
My neighbors and friends were astounded 
Many had doubted, did not think it could be done
However with my dandelion-generated motor

for it could no longer sprint,
