Prolog & Poem By Leah

While upon an often traveled highway, I noticed a field of sunflowers growing. A few weeks later while riding, the same stretch of road, to my delight and imagination, the sunflowers were all in full bloom, all looking toward the same direction in the sky. I could barely wait to tell Allen! A few days later found the two of us enjoying the wondrous display together in amazement and awe. It's delights such as this beautiful field in golden array, that sparks the fires of fantasy for this artist. It is my belief that each one of us, from time to time should delight the child within us, and make time in our busy, scheduled lives to stop and play in such a field as this. Work time is all so important, but without that playtime, I fear that we would soon lose a more important aspect of life; the joy of living!

My gypsy soul longs to run wild and free through the fields

Of taller than me giant sunflowers.

To hide my restrictions and inhibitions amongst those

Bountiful leaves that reach to cover all my restraints.

To hide in the shadows of their images all that would

Hold me in bondage.

To lay down under their covering those ropes and chains that

Tug ferociously against my nature.

And once done, I can again dance the dance of the gypsys,

And sing merrily as I shake my tambourine.

In the full moon's sparkling and magical light,

The drum beat of my heart pounds a mystical, hypnotic cadence

As I succumb to the allure and intrigue that has fervently seduced me

As I find myself stopping, then running through the sunflower fields.

Singing: "dance little gypsy girl, dance for me. Dance little gypsy girl, wild and free."

I can see the brightness of these yellow giants and feel the summer breeze on my face as I dance in this field of mother natures best. Great write and great thoughts highlighted by the picture.
