The Dancing Flowers

The Dancing Flowers

A Poem by Ian Faraway

In this most cryptic life
I stand in an open field
Among flowers of yellow
My fixation on the wind
As it danced with the flowers
With  gracious amusement
The dance of the two
Does not concern life
It is concentrated
In the moment of togetherness
The olive field danced carefree
Letting off its tangy smell
With every sway
As if to say
"Let this life be cryptic
For I do not care to solve it.
I am here.
In this most fantastic moment.
Dancing with love and passion.
Forget everything else."

Stunning visuals throughout this piece. I love the last stanza in this poem. Sometimes we have to let things go and just live and breathe in the moment.
