To Hear Butterflies Sing

Posted February 26, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

I don’t want to see killing.
I don’t want to touch blood.
I don’t want to hear suffering.
I don’t want to smell dirt.
I don’t want to taste rot.
I want to see kids playing in their yards.
I want to taste spaghetti.
I want to smell flowers.
I want to touch the clouds.
I want to hear butterflies sing.
