    when I read the copper tint sky one
    I loved it I could practically smell the salt water and feel the breeze

Best Poem of Hunter Dasten

That Little Girl With Her Hands To The Sky

Have you ever clung to a desire for so long
that your eyes saw nothing else?
The most beautiful part of existence is the ability to dream,
to aspire toward a goal, no matter how lofty!

Like the little girl with her hand outstretched to the stars,
hoping for just one touch of the cosmos.
Try as she may, with all of her might
soon she will realize she cannot reach very far.
That little girl does not cry!
In fact she simply sits there,
smiling.

And soon tonight, like many before
her mother will call with affection,
peeking out the front ...

Read the full of That Little Girl With Her Hands To The Sky

A Ballerina's Dance

Her feet float above the stage
as if carried by some unseen force.
From my view among the generally admitted
I can hardly make out the details of her face.
But those graceful movements are so alluring
each subtle step, precise, and all consuming.

She is the most vulnerable of all artists,
performing a dance that demands every emotion soak through her skin.
