Plane Poetry

Take me down to the Lowlands
Where a colorful battlefield awaits
Tell me who you are and where you're from
Thunder claps and tragedy strikes
I find safety falling down the rabbit hole
Then I dust off the dollar signs into broad daylight

Take me down to the Lowlands
Where a garden of daydreams awaits
An Irish grin on a French Saturday
Turquoise skies and I am nervously brave
"Let's jump off this bridge" he says
Lose my necklace at the bottom of the seabed

Take me down to the Lowlands
Where a maze of emotions awaits
Up the streets of Brussels, down the road from Hamburg
Heartstrings hum to Mumford & Sons
Kiss me on the train, confetti falls like rain
But then you're gone the very next day

Take me down to the Lowlands
Where a single sunflower awaits
I find a crown in the haystack
And the key to an island suite
Kind faces and beautiful places match with warm embraces
We will see each other again soon, I promise

Take me down to the Lowlands
Where my dog days await
We hit the crescendo, and the clock strikes 8
Eyes ablaze while the sun begins to fade
Out of the Seven States of Summer
Everything has changed, and I emerge seven years older

I'm a California girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and always has her head in the clouds. I currently live in the Netherlands and am attending university at a small honors liberal arts college in the south. I have an artist's soul, a corny sense of humor, and a ravenous mind that hunts down the meaning of life everywhere I go. I love traveling, learning, questioning, experiencing, and am an anthropology and political science major who loves to write and make up stories about the absurdity of the world we live in.
