Excitement fills me as I run down the hill, through the open paddock. I feel the grass hitting gently against my shins and the wind tugging at my hair. I run and run and run.
Stopping I rest my hands on my knees to catch my breath for a moment. I can hear the crickets chirping in the creek beyond. I breathe in the summer air, it smells like fresh grass and warm sunshine. I flop myself down into the soft green expanse.
Looking up I see the big blue sky, the expanse makes me feel free. The distant blue mountains remind me this is home. Closer to me are an array of wild flowers bobbing their heads happily. Pink, blue, yellow, white....soooo many colours and yet all beautiful together.
I pick a bright yellow dandelion and notice how the vibrancy bounces off my own skin as I hold it near.
I am just like a wild flower. Unique, my own stunning colour, shining my own vibrancy, adding to the mix, creating beauty.
This life is just a dream, remember who you are wildflower, before everything!
