Signs

© Shanyn Silinski
When I first saw you
little wings 
started beating inside my heart
When we walked side by side
holding your hand
was as easy 
as breathing
And when the sign said
No Through Road
we took off our shoes
and ran in the mud.

" Reminded me of the old song--Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?"--I'm all for running barefoot through the mud, any day.Even better with some good company.

Oh the thought of running barefoot side by side with the one you love... it would make an adorable scene in a romantic movie... <3

I couldn't help but notice the pink banner on your sidebar. It reminded me of a poem I LOVE and would like to share with you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6wJl37N9C0 Hope you enjoy it in case you still don't know it.

Kisses. :)

If you can't have fun with it, why do it at all?

I'm a big fan of running through the mud.
