Fay Slimm.






What is deep I want fiercely.
What is heart-moving I need to feel.
In what is adventure I wish to partake
and live to fulfillment.

If time and chance allow me to dive
into experience I shall leave the shallows.
With wings boldly open
what is known as free flight I want to try.

I plan to learn the musical notes of life's
exciting symphony.
If there are tunes better than mood-blues
these I will start to sing.

So come forward potential.
I have mantra's mystique to re-invent lots 
of sensory action.
With what are catalysts for energy change
I want an avalanche.

If love means completion I shall barter no
more and fall willingly.
What is bliss I intend to get by surrender      
to the pleasures of living.
