    Some life is found on roads
    Where particles of dust thrive
    To remind us of our journeys
    But what are journeys without dust
    And books without words

    Find me in the covers of books
    Smelling scents of ink in black and white
    Feeding from stories with hats and kites
    Fold me at the edges of pages
    That move like rivers’ broken banks

    Some life is found on trees
    Where birds tweet in early morning sprees
    Singing wordless music to an ignorant humanity

    Find me in the spring of leaves
    The sway of trees
    Working to gift the air with purity
    Clouds, skies, mountain peaks;
    Flowers, bees, morning dews

    Some life is found in boats
    That lay quiet along sea shores
    With untold stories of angry fish and happy tides
    Find me in laughters of new born
    Smiles of fathers upon daughters
    Pats of mothers to sons with pride of life

    Some life is found in lonely street alleys
    Crying out of broken hearts
    Missing the souls
    That walked through them on sunny days

    Find me in these streets
    With clothes befriending the cold
    Hands stretched to people who have homes

    You can find me in the places I have found
    Where, can I find you?
