Reason to Believe

The first thing that came to mind was my grandchildren. They inspire me to believe that there is good in the world. They inspire me to see the beauty in a butterfly and in scattered rocks on the ground. I can be walking with them on a beach and not see the lovely shell that my grandson finds and hands to me. I cherish the opportunity to see the world through their eyes. I need to believe that we can fix this world. That we can clean up our act as human beings so that our children and grandchildren will have a world worth living in. I know that there is life beyond this life but we have to make the most of this life. We have purpose and we have the ability to create such wonderful things and we can create what we need to keep this world beautiful and clean for our children and their children to enjoy.

Fireflies dancing in the night.

Small feet running in the damp grass with giggles of delight.

Dancing and twirling in the pale moonlight.

We laugh and play and play chase in the night.

Then it is time for sleep and cuddles through the night.

    1. No problem. :D. In French it is dance. In Spanish it is Music. In Hindu it means Breeze. It also was a specific piece of music written for the funerals of royalty. There is one specific one by Ravel that I was named after. It can be spelled Pavon, Pavan(e) as well.
