You are the Rainforest - Seven Dwarfs Turquoise & Sterling silver cuff bracelet
A young rainforest has yet to know of the world
the harsh reality of mistrust, humiliation, and disappointment
but maybe that's the charm of it all.
Trees strung about in a wild fun mess of branches
smells of flowers and mil-dewy ferns on the floors
welcomes me to close my eyes and be comfortable.
Every little detail has its own story to tell
every little creature a character of its own
in between the plants it whispers to me
songs and tales of the forest's past, present, and future.
The surface of it so bright and colorful
and the bottom so dark and wonderfully cool
for each drop of rain that falls feels warm against the skin
embracing me as one of its own.
Not knowing of what I have seen and felt before.
But that does not matter,
for the rainforest is handsome, compelling, and full of surprises,
it takes when it can and gives even more.
Optimism that everything is alright,
that when I am in such a beautiful place,
there is no reason to worry.
In truly heartbreaking silence,
I think to myself,
I hope I never have to leave.
