It’s In My Nature

It’s In My Nature

written by: Fotoula Reynolds


As I gypsy-dance
Through fragile visions
I fall on love and
It’s better than a dream

Have you ever gazed
At a morning’s fine mist
And felt it blessing
The earth and you

Autumn slowly passes
Winter gathers herself
And in constant change
Instincts are unknown

My youth lives somewhere
Behind my eye-lids and it
Sinks into a rippled past
Hiding secrets from me

Baby bird feathers
Downward sway
Strangely twisted
Moments falling

In stately places
Dreams are unfinished
Making light of the dark
I search for something
