I want to know your plans,
Feel your heart, your hands.

Can you see the birds?
Soft wings flap unheard.

We just spin around the sun,
Light feet that weigh a ton.

Can you taste the ghosts?
Secret lives, sacred oaths.

Making castles in the sand,
Smooth, no concrete plans.

And can you feel the sky?
The blue will help us fly.
I was listening to a beautiful song called Sea of Teeth by Sparklehorse, in the song I heard the line "Can you taste the ghosts?". The song just inspired to write something, and this is it. Simple and rhyming, a lot different then how I have been writing lately.

You can definitely see you have a strong vision and what you wish to say in this piece. Short, but well thought out and you can see that you were inspired! Kudos, well done.
