Why is the sky blue during the day and dark blue at night?
Why do leaves float in the air?
How do stars sing to the moon?
When do horses talk to us?
When do books fly?
Who made rain red?
Who falls in love with the storm?
Where does the sun hide?
Does the day kiss the night?
Does the mountain run to the ocean?
How can we dream of the future?
