How to Rest
Close your eyes– Claudia Figueroa (10th grade)
Take my hand
Follow me into the mist
Let the fairies flutter near you
Let your body rise; levitate
Become weightless among these meadows
Smile in the comfort of the fresh, spring morning
That scent, maybe tea leaves mixed with rose petals
Let it surround you
Feeling silk upon your fingertips now,
Rest in the darkness
Close your eyes
