In Your Wildest Dreams

In Your Wildest Dreams

The sound of footsteps running through the grass. Heavy breathing, gasping for air.

Thwack! You feel your body hurtling through space followed by hitting the solid earth. Ouch.

Your eyes open slightly at first, then, when you see the dandelion seed head they open wide.

Wow! Look how beautiful!
