Sample text:

Single dream

If a poet living a single life

Speaks of a single dream

A single miracle is called into being


A Best Friend

Wind is like a good friend

To me, it is honest and true


Wind seems to have thoughts and feelings 

To me, it has personality and attitude

Show me your emotion —— I want to touch it

Show me your thought —— I want to share it

Show me your attitude —— I want to learn it

Show me who you are —— like wind does, celebrating each precious moment of my life.
