    The giraffe in the barn makes me giggle. Very cute. Love that when you think of your untamed life a giraffe came to mind. Very interesting. Wonder what it represents. Perhaps since he’s so tall, he sees things we don’t? And with those long legs, perhaps he will chase those dreams and reach them quicker? He’s in a barn. Is he curious?
    This piece has my wheels spinning. Love that!

    Let the doors swing open
    I la-la-la-love your untamed life calling
    I can hear it, see it, feel it too.
    Foot loose and fancy free
    riding your bike
    through streets
    in the breeze
    windswept you
    and all those
    animals too
    with many
    to serve
    and beauty
    to feel and
    see and
    l i s t e n
    so closely
    and so far
    every last
    bit of
    in your

    later that day
    lounging beds of hay
