the leaves tilt to the melodies of the sun
but i'm numb, and blind.
i can only hear them whisper
but my soul doesn't speak the same language
so i stand still. in a noisy silence that i want to escape.
it is then, when i am about to run away, that the first flower blooms.
in my black and white mind, hues of pink and blue wake up
as the first petals start to whine like newborns.
the blindness becomes shades
the shades become light
and the light caresses my skin as i start to feel
the life of the flower invade the life within me.
and it is then, when i am about to give in to the beauty of the colours
that the second flower starts to bloom.
and this flower is red.
and this flower is blooming from my heart.
from my soul.
and it is now, that, alive, i can understand the whispers of the leaves.
they sing beautiful songs to the melodies of the sea.
now that i understand the music, my petals dance a waltz with the sun.
and let me tell you,
the world has never been so happy.
